Replacement of Air Conditioner in Recreation Room
LVT Number: 14409
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the replacement of an air-conditioning unit in the recreation room located between the two buildings of an apartment complex. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed and lost. The recreation building was a freestanding structure between the two buildings and was available to all tenants. The air-conditioning compressor replaced a 28-year-old unit whose useful life had expired and it was a major part of the air-conditioning system. It qualified as an MCI.
