SRO Occupant May Be Entitled to Rent-Stabilized Tenancy
LVT Number: #30341
Landlord sued to evict occupant of rent-stabilized SRO unit, claiming that occupant was a licensee whose license expired when tenant GTI Imports gave up possession of the unit. Landlord and occupant signed a settlement agreement by which occupant agreed to move out and landlord waived any back rent due. Occupant then obtained an attorney who asked for appointment of a guardian ad litem (GAL) because occupant was mentally ill, and to vacate the judgment and warrant.
