Tenant Complains First-Floor Medical Office Buzzed in Visitors Without Screening
LVT Number: #30203
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in building-wide services. Tenant claimed that a downstairs commercial medical office tenant treated the front entrance door as a private vestibule and gave entrance to anyone who rang the exterior doorbell without screening or identifying the visitors before buzzing them in. Tenant therefore was deprived of a securely locked front door. The DRA ruled against tenant after a DHCR inspector found no problem with the main entrance door and lock. Tenant appealed and lost.
