HPD Reasonably Ruled that Housing Applicant Was Over-Income
LVT Number: #30197
HPD denied the application of prospective tenant for middle-income housing after finding that tenant had excessive household income and therefore didn't qualify. Tenant filed an Article 78 court appeal of HPD's decision. The court ruled against tenant, who appealed and lost. HPD's decision was consistent with governing marketing guidelines.
