Hi! I'm wondering if anyone knows whether heat is considered an essential service in a rent controlled apt?
According to the DHCR fact sheets #3:
"Under rent control, the owner must provide and maintain all services furnished or required to be furnished on the base date of May 1, 1950 for rent controlled apartments outside of NYC, and March 1, 1943 for those within NYC."
Although my apt was registered as a cold water flat in 1943, I have had heat for the last couple of decades. Is my landlord required to provide heat and hot water in this situation?
Thank you in advance for your help!
