Super's Wife Who Isn't a Tenant Can't Claim Protection from Eviction as Domestic Violence Victim
LVT Number: #30727
Landlord sued to evict the building super's wife from a basement apartment after sending her a 10-day notice to quit as a licensee. Landlord had allowed the building super to live in the apartment as an incident to his employment, and the wife later moved in with him in 2012. She claimed that, after years of physical, emotional, and psychological abuse, she started a family court case in April 2019. This resulted in the issuance of a number of orders of protection, initially excluding the super from the apartment.
