NYCHA Reasonably Sought to Accommodate Tenant's Fear of Apartment Entry

February 13, 2017
LVT Number: #27487

Tenant filed an Article 78 appeal of NYCHA’s decision to terminate her Section 8 rent subsidy. The court ruled against tenant. Tenant failed to act reasonably in response to NYCHA’s attempts to accommodate her mental illness, which caused her to suffer panic attacks at the prospect of any person entering her apartment. Tenant refused to permit NYCHA to conduct an apartment inspection supervised by tenant’s friend or by the building owner or while tenant wasn’t in the apartment.
