Rewiring Doesn't Qualify
LVT Number: 18312
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on rewiring. The DRA ruled against landlord. Landlord appealed and lost. The installation didn't include new risers and feeders. They had been installed six years before the electrical work that was the basis for the MCI application. Given the extensive time lapse, the installation couldn't be considered an MCI. It was a piecemeal installation that didn't qualify for a rent hike.
