Rewiring Work Done on Piecemeal Basis Didn't Qualify as MCI
LVT Number: #32180
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on rewiring with related wall repairs and an installation of a new chimney stack. The DRA ruled against landlord, who appealed and lost. The rewiring work wasn't done as a unified and consecutively timed project. Rewiring of six apartments not included in the MCI application in fact was done as early as 1996, while the work landlord applied for began in 2007. Landlord also submitted no proof of the specific work done to those apartments. As to the chimney installation, the prior chimney hadn't yet outlived its useful life.
