Tenant Didn't Reschedule After Canceling DHCR Inspection
LVT Number: #31324
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of decreased services in her apartment. The DRA ruled against tenant, based on tenant's failure to provide access for a scheduled DHCR inspection after landlord disputed the claimed conditions. Tenant appealed and lost. She claimed that she couldn't provide access on Feb. 6, 2020, because she had a COVID-related medical emergency. DHCR Policy Statement 90-2 provided for DHCR inspection to confirm conditions when they're disputed. The DHCR inspection was originally scheduled for Jan. 30, 2020, and was rescheduled for Feb.
