Landlord's Termination Notice in Owner Occupancy Case Was Insufficient
LVT Number: #28176
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for owner occupancy. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case, claiming that landlord's termination notice was inadequate. The court ruled for tenant and dismissed the case. Landlord's notice cited the statutory language governing owner occupancy proceedings. But the notice stated only that landlord needed the apartment for a member of landlord's immediate family without identifying a name or the person's relationship to landlord.
