Landlord Improperly Sought Eviction of Section 8 Tenant
LVT Number: #28065
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for violating a substantial obligation of his tenancy. Landlord claimed that tenant failed to maintain his Section 8 voucher after uncorrected hazardous conditions in tenant's apartment resulted in termination of landlord's Housing Assistance Program (HAP) contract with NYCHA. The court granted tenant's request to dismiss the case. The court found that landlord's notice to cure and termination notice didn't state any breach of a substantial obligation of tenant's lease.
