DOB Records Contradict Landlord's Claim
LVT Number: #24807
Landlord sued to evict month-to-month tenant after sending a 30-day termination notice, claiming that tenant was unregulated. After starting the case, landlord asked the court for permission to amend its petition to state that the building was exempt from rent stabilization because it was an SRO containing fewer than six units. The court ruled against landlord and dismissed the case. Landlord bought the building in 2007. The Certificate of Occupancy for the building contained in DOB's records showed that there were 10 units in the building.
