Landlord Can't Evict Tenant Who Had Lease Under LINC Program
LVT Number: #30483
Landlord of three-family dwelling sued to evict month-to-month tenant who received Living in Communities (LINC) program benefits. Landlord claimed that there was no effective lease. The court ruled against landlord and dismissed the case. Tenant's LINC rider stated that tenant was entitled to a self-executing renewal for a second year and three additional one-year leases after that. Landlord claimed that the LINC rider violated the Urstadt Law.
