Tenants Only Complained of Broken Concrete in Courtyard
LVT Number: 9240
(Decision submitted by James R. Marino of the Manhattan law firm of Kucker Kraus & Bruh, attorneys for the landlord.) Tenants complained of broken concrete in the building's courtyard. A DHCR inspector found broken concrete in the courtyard and around the building entrances. The DRA cut tenants' rent, and landlord appealed. Landlord argued that tenants had complained about broken concrete only in the courtyard, not around the building entrances. The DHCR ruled for landlord. Tenants didn't complain about the concrete around the building entrances, so they can't get rent cuts for that defect.
