Landlord Can Evict Elderly Rent-Stabilized Tenant for Objectionable Conduct
LVT Number: #29708
Landlord sued to evict elderly rent-stabilized tenant for creating a nuisance. Landlord claimed that tenant was interfering with other tenants' comfort and rights by urinating and defecating in wheelchairs, and leaving the urine-soaked wheelchairs in the building hallways with foul odors permeating the building. Tenants also stated that tenant exposed himself by walking through the building with his pants down. The court appointed a guardian ad litem (GAL) for tenant. Landlord and tenant then signed a settlement agreement putting tenant on probation for two years.
