Court Refuses to Enforce 2004 HPD Certificate of Eviction
LVT Number: #24700
(Decision submitted by David Berger of the Brooklyn law firm of Tenenbaum Berger & Shivers, LLP, attorneys for the tenants.)
Landlord of Roberto Clemente Plaza sued to evict Mitchell-Lama tenants based on a 2004 HPD decision denying them succession rights. At that time, HPD also issued a certificate of eviction. Landlord claimed that, since tenants never appealed HPD's decision, it was entitled to evict tenants as a matter of law and that no trial was needed.
