Landlord Didn't Prove Tenant Sublet Apartment to Her Son
LVT Number: #29790
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for illegally subletting her apartment without landlord's knowledge or consent. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case, claiming that the apartment occupant in question was her son. Tenant said that the son moved in shortly after she began renting the apartment and that she later moved out, leaving the son to live in the apartment by himself while she occasionally visited him there.
