Apartment Occupant Can’t Appeal Owner Occupancy Award
LVT Number: #26845
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for owner occupancy. The trial court ruled for landlord. Apartment occupant appealed and lost. Landlord showed a good faith intention to have her married daughter and son-in-law live in tenant’s apartment. And occupant had no standing to appeal. Tenant had died, and occupant now claimed that landlord had to offer her a renewal lease. But landlord was only required to send tenant a lease nonrenewal notice before starting the eviction case.
