Mr. Cunningham said this may have been caused by the fear of "red tape." but this also has been eliminated to ft great extent under the new .system. "If any facts obtained from a landlord indicate he may have a reason for getting an increase, his petition will b e processed even though he may not have checked off the right section of the regulation upon which he is relying or may have filed the wrong petition form," said Mr. Cunningham. Increases Availability One other phase of the new regulation is designed to increase the H bail ability of homes to families through granting increases in rent to landlords on the basis of occupancy of a dwelling. On the bisis of occupancy, a landlord is eligible for rent increases, Mr. Cunningham explained the following instances: if he rents to a larger family than that previously occupying the unit; If he rents to a family consisting of more persons than constitutes normal occupancy for the unit; or. if he rents to a tenant who takes 'Vroomers or boarders. mt Childbirth Kxcepleri "Above normal occupancy." however, does not apply to dwelling which the sl/e of the family has been increased by the birth of R child, he explained. This applies when birth of the child occurs while the parents arc tenants of the building. Major capital improvements for which a landlord may claim a rent increase include the following: Construction or modernization of a |>orch; improvement to plumbing, heating or electrical equipment; change in the interior partitions (o improve layout of the dwelling; stallation of air conditioning; street Improvement; unproved sewage facilities; addition or improvement of IT'S TIME TO SHINE WITH THESH/f/eTHAT STAYS! it has a hard-wax finish H oil/wood ('nnlimu'd from I'; IRC 8 lars down payment," "I'm siUint; there."
