Son Couldn't Prove Succession Rights
LVT Number: #26179
Rent-stabilized tenant’s son complained in 2013 that landlord refused to give him a renewal lease after tenant died that year. He claimed that he had lived in the apartment with tenant since 1971. Landlord pointed out that tenant had signed a renewal lease in 2013 and it wasn’t required to add the son’s signature to that renewal lease. Landlord also argued that the son provided insufficient proof of succession rights.
