Landlord Claims Tenant-Shareholder Violated Alteration Agreement
LVT Number: #24724
Tenant-shareholder sued landlord cooperative corporation, claiming that the co-op breached her proprietary lease and alteration agreement by stopping her renovation work. Landlord, in turn, claimed that tenant violated the lease and agreement. The court ruled for landlord without a trial. Tenant appealed, and the case was reopened. Whether tenant violated the alteration agreement by drilling into the ceiling as claimed by landlord was a question of fact that required a trial.
