Notice to Cure Sufficiently Stated Grounds for Illegal Sublet Claim

LVT Number: #28080

Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for illegal subletting. The court granted tenant's request to dismiss the case. Landlord appealed, and the case was reopened. Landlord's notice to cure reasonably stated the nature of landlord's claim and the facts needed to prove the existence of grounds for eviction. Landlord claimed that tenant was living at a specified address other than the apartment and had breached a substantial obligation of her tenancy by unlawfully subletting or assigning the apartment to a named individual without landlord's consent and in violation of Real Property Law Section 226-b and Rent Stabilization Law Section 2524.3(a) and 2524.3(h).
