Some Exterior Restoration Work Disallowed
LVT Number: #24602
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes for exterior restoration work. The DRA ruled for landlord in part, but disallowed any increase for pointing/masonry, balcony repair, consulting architect, and heat computer. The DRA found that these items didn't qualify as MCIs. Landlord appealed and lost. Pointing/masonry and balcony work done below the roof and parapet level are not MCIs. The DRA also disallowed mobilization costs because landlord didn't provide a useable breakdown of this item, so the DRA couldn't determine what the cost covered.
