DHCR Can't Reopen Succession Claim
LVT Number: #24759
A family member claimed succession rights and complained to the DHCR that landlord refused to give her a renewal lease after rent-stabilized tenant died. The DRA ruled against the family member, who appealed and lost. The DHCR had previously ruled against the family member's succession rights claim in a prior 2008 decision, which the family member never appealed. She couldn't now challenge the DHCR's final prior decision through a new complaint claiming there was new evidence.
