Landlord sued to evict apartment occupant after rent-controlled tenant died, claiming that occupant had been tenant's licensee. Occupant claimed succession rights to the apartment. The trial court ruled for tenant and dismissed the case. Occupant proved that she was tenant's granddaughter and that she had lived in the apartment with tenant for two years before tenant died. Occupant also showed that she lived in the apartment as her primary residence between December 2010 and December 2012, when tenant died.
