Landlords Can Sue NYCHA for Failing to Increase Subsidies
LVT Number: #24636
Four landlords who participated in the Section 8 rent subsidy program sued NYCHA for breach of contract, and sought payment of increased rent subsidies they claimed were unpaid for apartments located in several Bronx buildings. Landlords claimed that NYCHA refused to pay rent increases that were authorized for 26 tenants under the Rent Stabilization Law and Rent Guidelines Board. They also claimed improper suspension of Section 8 subsidies for some other tenants.
