Rent Reduction Ordered Even If Balcony Blocked for Required Facade Work
LVT Number: #28234
Rent-stabilized tenant complained to the DHCR of a reduction of services in February 2016 because her apartment balcony had been unusable since the spring of 2015. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced her rent. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord pointed out that it had to perform exterior work required by local law, which was temporary in nature and which was needed to complete routine building maintenance.
