Son of Rent-Stabilized Tenant Was 61 When Tenant Vacated
LVT Number: #30747
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant's son after tenant moved out of the apartment. The son claimed succession rights, but the court ruled against him. The son appealed and lost. The trial court fairly interpreted evidence to find that the son didn't live in the apartment with tenant for at least two years before tenant vacated in April 2016. Tenant had signed a DHCR form stating that the son moved in with her in January 2015, less than 16 months before she moved out.
