NYCHA Never Advised Tenant of Objection to Son
LVT Number: #24762
NYCHA denied the request of deceased tenant's son for a lease based on succession rights. NYCHA ruled against the son, finding him ineligible for his own lease. The son appealed and won, in part. Tenant had lived in the NYCHA apartment for 50 years before she died. Her son had been raised in the apartment before moving out in 1975 at age 21. In September 2004, tenant asked NYCHA for permission to add her son back into the household. She was now elderly and ill and needed his assistance. Tenant supplied all the required paperwork with her application.
