Landlord Can't Prove Loft Tenant Profiteered Through Short-Term Rentals
LVT Number: #28194
Landlord sued to eject rent-stabilized loft tenant based on illegal subletting of rooms in the loft through Airbnb to numerous individuals over a two-year period. Landlord asked the court to rule in its favor without a trial. The court ruled against landlord and granted tenant's request to dismiss the case. Landlord appealed and won in part, although the case remained dismissed.
