Tenant Signed Statement Admitting Repairs Were Made
LVT Number: 11254
(Decision submitted by Patrick K. Munson of the Manhattan law firm of Kucker Kraus & Bruh, attorneys for the landlord.) The DRA reduced tenant's rent based on findings of various reductions in services. Landlord later applied to restore the rent based on restoration of services. The DRA ruled for landlord in part since tenant had signed a statement admitting repairs were made. But the DRA didn't revoke the rent reduction because one complaint remained concerning tenant's air conditioner. Landlord appealed and argued that tenant's statement admitted that all required repairs had been made. Any further complaint about tenant's air conditioner was a new complaint and had no bearing on the rent restoration. The DHCR agreed and ruled for landlord. Tenant's rent was restored to the level in effect before the rent reduction.
