DHCR Revises Monthly Surcharges for Tenant-Installed Appliances
The DHCR recently issued Supplement No. 2 to Operational Bulletin 2005-1, which sets the monthly surcharges you can collect from rent-controlled and rent-stabilized tenants who buy and install their own portable or permanent washing machines, dryers, or dishwashers. The last time this Operational Bulletin was updated was in July 2009. The DHCR says the permissible monthly surcharges take effect immediately, and it will apply them in all currently pending cases in which the owner is seeking a surcharge for one of these tenant-installed appliances.
