Tenant Improperly Notified of Subsidy Termination
LVT Number: #24436
Landlord NYCHA terminated tenant's Section 8 subsidy. Tenant filed an Article 78 appeal of NYCHA's decision and sought retroactive reinstatement. NYCHA claimed that tenant's appeal was untimely because it was filed more than four months after NYCHA's decision. But NYCHA produced no proof of written notification to tenant of her subsidy termination. Landlord's phone call to tenant was insufficient. So tenant could proceed with her appeal.
