Occupant Assigned Apartment by Nonprofit Couldn't Claim Rent-Stabilized Status
LVT Number: #29980
Subtenant sued rent-stabilized tenant and landlord, and asked the court to stop tenant from evicting subtenant. The court ruled against subtenant, who appealed and lost. Tenant was a not-for-profit organization that entered into agreements with government agencies to lease apartments from private landlords using government funding, and provided housing stipends for its clients. Tenant had signed a rent-stabilized lease for an apartment in landlord's building. Landlord later refused to renew tenant's lease.
