Transfer of Garbage Cans to Basement Wasn't Reduction in Services
LVT Number: #29895
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in building-wide services. The DRA ruled against tenant, finding no service reduction. Tenant appealed and lost. Among other things, tenant complained that landlord had previously provided trash receptacles on each floor by the stairwells for tenants to dispose of their trash. But after ECB issued a violation in 2015 for failure to keep the exit passageways unobstructed, landlord was required to remove the garbage cans and other obstructions from these areas.
