Grandmother Can't Get Tenant's NYCHA Apartment
LVT Number: #24433
NYCHA tenant's grandmother filed a remaining family member grievance after tenant moved out, which NYCHA denied after a hearing. The grandmother then filed an Article 78 appeal, claiming that NYCHA's decision was unreasonable. The court ruled against the grandmother. Tenant had submitted a permanent permission request to add the grandmother to the household but was twice denied because it would create an overcrowded condition in the two-bedroom apartment occupied by tenant, his wife, and two children.
