Preferential Rent Provision Was Revocable Upon 2018 Lease Renewal
LVT Number: #31066
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for nonpayment of rent. Tenant objected, claiming that landlord was now charging her more than a preferential rent as it did under her initial lease in 2000. Landlord argued that it was entitled to discontinue tenant's preferential rent under the terms of tenant's lease agreement because tenant was behind in rent at the time her last renewal lease was executed in 2018.
