Security Cameras Installed by Cooperative Qualified as MCI
LVT Number: #30281
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on installation of security cameras at the building. The DRA ruled for landlord and increased rents. Tenants appealed and lost. They argued that the building's cooperative corporation paid for the improvement and that the security cameras weren't monitored. But the fact that the cost of the MCI was paid by the co-op corporation and that there was no special assessment to co-op shareholders wasn't grounds for denying the MCI.
