Rent-Stabilized Tenant's Daughter Can't Get Apartment
LVT Number: #30031
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant's daughter after tenant died in 2015. The daughter claimed succession rights to the apartment. The court ruled for landlord after trial. The daughter appealed and lost. The daughter lived with tenant for 20 years, then moved out in 1994. She later moved back into the apartment with her daughter in 2005. Tenant remained in the apartment until 2009, then moved out when she enrolled in school in the fall of 2009. She again moved back into the apartment in May 2015, after graduation and a month after tenant died.
