Does Rent-Stabilized Tenant's Daughter Have Succession Rights?
LVT Number: #30264
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for nonprimary residence. Tenant opposed landlord's claim. Alternatively, tenant's daughter claimed succession rights. Landlord asked the court to rule on tenant's nonprimary residence without trial. The court ruled for landlord. Tenant didn't dispute that he moved out of the apartment in October 2013. Landlord and tenant's daughter also asked the court to rule without trial on the question of the daughter's succession rights. The court found that a trial was needed.
