NYCHA Tenant's Family Members Can't Get Apartment
LVT Number: #24539
Family members claimed succession rights to NYCHA tenant's apartment after tenant died. NYCHA ruled against them after an administrative hearing. The family members appealed and lost. They argued that they were exempt from landlord's remaining family member policy because landlord didn't comply with the notice requirements stated in tenant's lease. But the family members didn't have standing to raise this argument since they weren't parties to the lease and had no other contractual relationship with landlord.
