In Reply to: Air Conditioner -- Must Landlord replace? posted by Rudi on June 17, 1998 at 15:17:11:
: My NYC rent-stabilized apartment has a built-in air-conditioner, which was in my apartment when I moved in, back in 1991. It is built into the window, which was specially modified to allow the air conditioner. Thus if I remove the air conditioner and discard it, there will be a large hole.
: The air conditioner broke down recently and has to be replaced. Question is, does the landlord have to replace this or must I do so? If so, are there any specific cases or regulations or whatnot that I can site to my landlord if he gives me a hard time? Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.
If the unit was provided by the owner (he may now claim it was put in by
a prior tenant without his knowledge, so anticipate that one) on or after
the base dates (1968 or 1974), then he must continue to provide the
service. See DHCR sheets on the web sites to see if they can charge you
extra for it though. Look for Operational Bulletin 84-4 and yearly updates.
