Settlement with DHCR Didn't Bar Landlord's Application to Modify Services
LVT Number: #30028
Tenant filed an Article 78 court petition to annul the DHCR's agreement with landlords that settled a noncompliance proceeding concerning trash collection. The court ruled against tenant, who appealed and lost. The settlement agreement, which required landlords to file an application for reduction or modification of services, didn't constitute revocation or modification of the DHCR's prior order requiring landlords to reinstate door-to-door trash collection in tenant's building.
