Window Replacement Piecemeal
LVT Number: 9281
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes, based on the installation of new windows. The DRA denied the application because landlord didn't do the work on a building-wide basis. Landlord appealed, arguing that it had replaced all the building's windows. The DHCR upheld the DRA's ruling. Landlord had replaced all the windows in a piecemeal fashion, doing 50 percent of them in 1980, and completing the job in 1987. So, the work doesn't qualify as an MCI.
