Tenant Can't Revive Service Complaint After Condition Cured

LVT Number: #30874

Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in services based on inadequate water service in his apartment. The DRA ruled against tenant, who appealed and lost. Tenant claimed that the building's water service was completely shut off for no fewer than 12 workdays during a one-year period ending on Nov. 30, 2018. He said that, by the time the DHCR showed up for inspection, service had been restored. Tenant argued that he was still entitled to a rebate for the service reduction.
