Grandson of Nonpurchasing Co-op Tenant Gets Succession Rights
LVT Number: #31152
Rent-stabilized tenant moved into the apartment in 1975. In 1984, tenant remained in the apartment when the building was converted to a non-eviction cooperative. When tenant died in 2008, the apartment owner gave tenant's daughter a renewal lease as a successor tenant. The owner later sued tenant, claiming that this was a mutual mistake because the apartment became deregulated when tenant died. The court granted tenant's request to dismiss the case.
