Super Resumed Rent-Stabilized Status When Employment Ended
LVT Number: #26076
Landlord sued to evict building super and his family in 2008 after the super's employment was terminated. Landlord claimed that the apartment was exempt from rent stabilization because the super lived there without paying rent. The super claimed that his family had been rent-stabilized tenants of the apartment before he became super and therefore they reverted to that status when his employment ended. Landlord and the super signed a settlement agreement in court by which landlord gave the family a lease at a negotiated first rent of $1,200.
