Tenant Properly Affirmed Application for Rent Reduction

LVT Number: #30379

Tenant complained of a reduction in required apartment services. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord claimed that the complaint was filed improperly by a tenant representative rather than by tenant.
