Disabled Tenant Can't Add Daughter in One-Bedroom Apartment
LVT Number: #24828
Tenant asked landlord NYCHA for permission to add her adult daughter as a permanent resident in her one-bedroom apartment. NYCHA ruled against tenant, who appealed and lost. Substantial evidence supported NYCHA's finding that adding tenant's daughter as a permanent tenant would create an overcrowding situation in violation of occupancy standards and would unfairly provide the daughter with a windfall to the detriment of other housing applicants.
