LVT Number: #27657

Landlord sued to evict two building tenants, claiming that they were unregulated. Tenants claimed that they were rent stabilized. The court ruled for tenants and dismissed the case.

Landlord argued that, since the sixth apartment was illegal, it didn’t make the building subject to rent stabilization. Landlord also said that the sixth apartment had been removed.
