Rent-Stabilized Tenant's Son Gets Apartment After Tenant Dies

LVT Number: #30292

Rent-stabilized tenant's son complained that landlord refused to offer him a renewal lease after tenant died. The DRA ruled for the son and directed landlord to offer him a renewal lease. Landlord appealed and lost. The son showed that he had moved into the apartment in October 1997, when his mother initially moved in. The son advised landlord of tenant's death in February 2017 and submitted copies, at landlord's request, of annual recertification papers for social services benefits, driver's license, W-2s, medical records, paystubs, and an SSI disability letter.
