Nonprofit Tenant Claims It's Entitled to Rent-Stabilized Renewal Lease

LVT Number: #30869

Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for nonprimary residence. Tenant in turn asked the court to dismiss the case and to order landlord to issue a renewal lease. Landlord claimed that Harlem United was a nonprofit entity that rented the apartment under government funding and wasn't entitled to a renewal lease when its lease expired on Aug. 31, 2019. Tenant argued that it provided supportive programs and services to vulnerable, impoverished individuals through "scatter site" apartments for its clients to live in under occupancy agreements.
