Landlord Can Demolish Three-Family House and Evict Tenant
LVT Number: #29811
Landlord applied for permission to terminate rent-controlled tenant's tenancy and demolish a three-family house. The other two apartments were vacant. The DRA ruled for landlord, finding that landlord had established its good-faith intent to demolish the building, had submitted approved plans for the demolition, and demonstrated its financial ability to complete the project. Tenant appealed, but his PAR was rejected on procedural grounds. Tenant then filed an Article 78 court appeal of the DHCR's decision.
