No Pass-on Rights for Health Care Worker in Apartment Subject to Federal Program
LVT Number: 14794
Landlord sued to evict tenant's home health care worker after tenant died. Tenant had been subject to a HUD-based Section 8 program. The home health care worker claimed pass-on rights. She said she had developed a personal relationship with tenant after she started working for him and should be treated as a nontraditional family member. The court ruled for landlord. Even if the health care worker was tenant's family member, pass-on rights didn't apply under the federal law that covered the building.
