Security Fences Don't Qualify
LVT Number: 13919
Landlord applied for MCI rent increases based on the installation of security fences and gates around the building complex. The DRA ruled against landlord. Landlord appealed and lost. Although the installation may improve security for tenants, it wasn't required for the operation, preservation, or maintenance of the building structure.
