Landlord Can't Maintain Ejectment Action Without Sending Termination Notice
LVT Number: #31006
Landlord sued DOB and rent-stabilized building tenants, seeking ejectment of tenants in order to comply with multiple violation notices from DOB. Landlord claimed that, to correct the violations, it needed to remove tenants and demolish their apartments. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case because landlord sought ejectment without first sending her a tenancy termination notice.
