Landlord Can't Evict Rent-Controlled Senior Citizen for Owner Occupancy
LVT Number: #27393
Landlord asked the DHCR for a certificate of eviction so that landlord could recover tenant’s apartment for owner occupancy. The DRA ruled against landlord because tenant was a senior citizen and had lived in the apartment for more than 20 years. Tenant therefore was exempt from eviction. Landlord appealed and lost, claiming that it had offered tenant another apartment.
