Court Dismisses Illegal Sublet Claim Against Daughter Claiming Pass-On Rights
LVT Number: #30557
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant's estate and her daughter after tenant died and the daughter advised landlord that she was claiming succession rights. Landlord claimed illegal sublet against the estate administrators and the daughter. Landlord asked the court for permission to conduct pre-trial questioning concerning the two-year period prior to tenant's death. The court ruled for landlord in part, and granted discovery only for one year prior to tenant's death.
