NYCHA Tenant's Daughter Can't Get Apartment After Tenant's Death
LVT Number: #31067
NYCHA tenant's daughter sought succession rights to an apartment after tenant died. NYCHA ruled against the daughter after a hearing, and tenant then filed an Article 78 court appeal. The daughter claimed that NYCHA's decision wasn't based on substantial evidence. The court ruled against her. Substantial evidence in fact supported NYCHA's decision. NYCHA had granted a request by tenant to remove the daughter from the family household composition. Tenant signed a sworn statement that the daughter had moved out of the apartment and that her whereabouts were unknown.
