Nonrenewal Notice Gave Enough Facts
LVT Number: 16522
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for owner occupancy. Tenant claimed landlord's lease nonrenewal notice didn't contain enough facts. The court ruled for tenant and dismissed the case based on the defective notice. Landlord appealed, claiming the notice was sufficient. The appeals court ruled for landlord. Landlord's notice stated that she needed the apartment for her daughter. Contrary to tenant's claim, landlord didn't have to state in the notice her daughter's name or why she wanted tenant's apartment instead of other apartments in the building.
