Tub Reglazing and Wood Floor Refinishing Disallowed from IAI Costs
LVT Number: #30078
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of rent overcharge. The DRA ruled for tenant and found a total rent overcharge of $22. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant disputed a number of individual apartment improvements (IAIs) that landlord claimed a rent increase for. The DRA denied any increase for tub reglazing and wood floor refinishing, since these items were repairs. But landlord otherwise submitted sufficient proof of IAIs, including contractor invoices and cancelled checks.
