Landlord Claims He Needs Tenant's Apartment for His Own Use
LVT Number: #26320
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant from apartment for owner occupancy. Tenant claimed that landlord’s lease nonrenewal notice didn’t state sufficient facts to support landlord’s claim. The court denied tenant’s request to dismiss the case. Tenant appealed and lost. The nonrenewal notice stated that the 78-year-old landlord had been sleeping on his daughter’s living room couch in Manhattan for the past year.
