Useful Life of Two-Ply Roof Is 10 Years
LVT Number: #19540
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on installation of a new roof. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenants appealed, claiming that the useful life of the old roof hadn't expired. The DHCR ruled against tenants. Landlord's contractor submitted a sworn statement that the old roof was a deteriorated two-ply roof. Under the Rent Stabilization Code, the useful life of a two-ply roof is 10 years. The old roof was more than 10 years old, so the DRA correctly granted landlord's MCI application.
