Rent-Stabilized Tenant's Daughter Forged Tenant's Name on Renewal Leases
LVT Number: #30683
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant and his daughter. Landlord claimed that tenant left the apartment in 2004 and began living elsewhere, without notifying landlord of the change in circumstances. After tenant left, his daughter admittedly forged tenant's signature on renewal leases through December 2017, never notified landlord that tenant had left, and paid the rent in tenant's name. Landlord asked the court to grant it possession without a trial. The court ruled for landlord.
