Tenant Gets Judgment from Subtenant for Back Rent While Moratorium Stays Eviction
LVT Number: #31197
Shareholder-tenant of a co-op apartment sued to evict his subtenant. That case was consolidated in State Supreme Court with a separate action concerning subtenant's right under the sublease to purchase tenant's interest in the apartment. The contract of sale for the apartment was terminated when subtenant failed to close on the purchase. The cancellation of the contract of sale had led to termination of the sublease and commencement of the eviction proceeding.
