SUSAN MAY TELL
FIRSTSERVICE RESIDENTIAL NEW YORK, INC. et al
Kotler, Lynn R.
Pre-answer Motion by Tenant
Landlord Substantially Won
Tenant petitioner brings action to have the window air conditioner in her rent stabilized apartment reinstalled instead of accepting a portable in-room unit. Landlord respondent argue window AC units are no longer allowed since building was converted to condo. Plaintiff's argues window AC is a required service, but court finds that a switch to a portable unit is only a modification of required service. Petitioner may request a portable AC unit since the court does find AC is a required service. Court denies petitioner's motion for summary judgment and grants respondent's motions for summary judgment and dismisses the complaint.
