No Notice to Cure Needed Before Terminating for Profiteering
LVT Number: #30837
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for using the apartment as a hotel for short-term rentals under Airbnb. At the same time, landlord sued tenant in State Supreme Court, seeking a preliminary injunction to stop tenant from continuing the short-term rentals because they created a nuisance and exposed landlord to civil and criminal penalties under the law. The court granted the preliminary bar to tenant's continued Airbnb rentals.
