Staircase Windows Were Hard to Open
LVT Number: #31137
Rent-stabilized tenant complained that windows throughout the building weren't working properly. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord argued that tenant's rent was reduced for a condition that wasn't stated in tenant's complaint. Landlord also argued that the condition found by the DHCR was de minimis--that is, minor.
