Did Housing Authority Improperly Refuse to Increase HAP Payments?
LVT Number: #24709
Landlord of a multifamily housing project who received Section 8 rent subsidies in the form of HAP payments on behalf of low-income tenants sued the local housing authority and the New York State Housing Finance Agency (NYSHFA). Landlord claimed that the housing authorities failed to make proper payments under the HAP contract because they failed to pay rent increases that were due. NYSHFA asked the court to dismiss any claims against it without a trial.
