Landlord Can't Get Back Rent Owed by Tenant from DSS
LVT Number: #29858
The NYC Department of Social Services (DSS) applied to the court for appointment of an Article 81 guardian for tenant, who was facing eviction proceedings. The court issued a temporary restraining order in December 2015 to prevent landlord from going forward with the eviction proceeding for 60 days following the guardian's appointment. The court later continued the temporary guardianship and again stopped landlord from going forward with the eviction proceeding for 90 days following the guardianship hearing.
