Tenant Died Before Judgment Entered in Eviction Proceeding
LVT Number: #24683
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for chronic nonpayment of rent. The case was adjourned in court a number of times during 2012. Tenant never appeared. Instead, tenant's nephew appeared, stating that tenant was in poor health. The court referred the case to APS, who found tenant ineligible for services. Finally, the court held an inquest on July 16, 2012, adjourned the case for landlord to submit a memo of law on July 25, 2012, then entered an order in landlord's favor on Aug. 15, 2012.
