Landlord Sufficiently Set Forth Illegal Sublet Claim in Notices to Tenant
LVT Number: #29771
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for illegally subletting her apartment without landlord's permission. Landlord claimed that other named individuals were seen coming and going from the apartment, while tenant hadn't been seen for extended periods. In a prior nonpayment proceeding, these people appeared and stated that tenant didn't live in the apartment. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the illegal subletting case, claiming that landlord's notice to cure and termination notice failed to state facts needed to prove its claims. The court ruled against tenant.
