Security Guard Service at Other Building in Complex Irrelevant to Finding of Reduced Service
LVT Number: #27653
Tenants complained of a reduction in building-wide services. The DRA ruled for tenants and reduced their rents. Landlord later applied for rent restoration based on a restoration of services. The DRA ruled against landlord, who appealed and lost. Based on inspection, the DRA properly found that landlord had failed to restore the hallway ceiling, roof, and the parking lot pavement. Landlord also failed to restore security guard service. Landlord claimed that security guard service wasn’t required because in another ruling, the DRA had found that security guard service wasn’t required. But the other DRA decision concerned a separate building in the same complex where tenants hadn’t proved that security guard service was provided.
