Yeah, but, according to DHCR: only if those things are not normal repair and maintenance like skim-coating and painting the walls or refinishing the floors and only if those things are not on the MCI list (for which LL can only file MCI's) and only if Ll has received no similar increases in the usual life of the items (duh!: LL must keep rent increase records for 10-20 years to prove this; same restriction on MCI's) and only if the LL can real of fake documentation for all items.
