In Reply to: rent reduction for covered intercom posted by susie on May 10, 2000 at 10:24:14:
: I have a rent-regulated iapartment in a building that went co-op. The co-op covered up an exterior intercom because they have a part-time doorman and think the intercom unsightly. I have friends who come late at night and cannot buzz me or talk to me from the vestibule. The intercom did not allow us to buzz th dooor open but did allow us to talke to visitors and know they were there. Is there a way to file for rent-reduction and remain anonymous as the politics are very difficult here? I believe it is a reduction in services if they covered this intercom up.
It probably is a reduction in services (building-wide, it would seem). Filing a DHCR complaint might well get the landlord to get that intercom restored in a hurry. If they fight it would take years to resolve, but I doubt they'd risk getting your rent reduced just because it is "unsightly."
No way you could keep it anonymous.
