Owner of Cooperative Apartment Can't Get Apartment for Own Use
LVT Number: 11301
Landlord (the owner of a cooperative apartment) sued to evict nonpurchasing rent-stabilized tenant to recover apartment for owner occupancy. The court ruled against landlord. Landlord appealed and lost. The General Business Law provisions on cooperative conversions bar eviction of non-purchasing tenants for owner use under a ``non-eviction'' plan. The building's cooperative offering plan also gave that tenant the right to remain in the apartment.
