Landlord v. Tenant: June 2019
MAJOR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS
Parking Area Wasn’t Commercial Space for MCI Purposes
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on installation of a new roof, facade and parapet restoration, bulkhead and entrance doors, intercoms, and related architectural fees. The DRA ruled for landlord but set the effective date of the MCI rent hike as Jan. 1, 2013, after finding that this was the first rent payment date after landlord submitted additional required information regarding the building’s commercial space.
