Landlord Must Provide Garage Space to Tenant
LVT Number: 19374
Rent-stabilized tenant complained of a reduction in services based on nonrenewal of a lease for garage space. The DRA ruled for tenant and ordered restoration of the garage space. Landlord appealed. Landlord owned the cooperative apartment that tenant lived in. Landlord said that the co-op corporation wanted the garage space back, therefore landlord could not renew tenant's garage space lease. The DHCR ruled against landlord. Nonpurchasing tenants, such as tenant in this case, keep all their rights under rent stabilization after conversion. Landlord and cooperative corporation are ''owners,'' as defined under the Rent Stabilization Code, and must continue to maintain required services provided to rent-stabilized tenants.
