Amended Law Protecting Tenants from Eviction in Condo Conversion Not Applied Retroactively
LVT Number: #31109
Former tenants sued landlords in a class action, claiming breach of contract. The tenants were all nonpurchasing tenants and either senior citizens or disabled when a noneviction condominium conversion plan was submitted to the NY Attorney General in 2014. They argued that their tenancies were improperly terminated under General Business Law Section 352-eeee after landlords converted the buildings to condominium ownership. The court ruled against tenants without a trial.
