Landlord's Termination Notice Claiming Nonprimary Residence Was Defective
LVT Number: #30345
Landlord sued to evict Mitchell-Lama co-op shareholder tenant for nonprimary residence and unlawful subletting without landlord's consent. Tenants asked the court to dismiss the case, claiming that landlord's notice to cure and termination notice were too vague. The court ruled for tenants. The notice to cure claimed tenants didn't reside in the apartment but were believed to be living in New Jersey while other people lived in the apartment without landlord's knowledge or consent. This was a sufficient allegation, but the termination notice was defective.
