Shareholder's Daughter Gets Former Mitchell-Lama Apartment
LVT Number: #30770
Landlord cooperative corporation, a former Mitchell-Lama co-op, that went free market in 2015, filed an Article 78 appeal of the DHCR's decision that former shareholder tenant's daughter had succession rights to tenant's apartment. Shareholder tenants, husband and wife, signed a Mitchell-Lama proprietary lease in 2004. Tenants' daughter claimed that she had lived in the apartment continually with tenants since 2004. Tenant's daughter applied for succession rights in 2014 after both tenants had moved out.
