Tenant Owned Luxury Co-op in Riverdale
LVT Number: #24823
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant of Manhattan apartment for nonprimary residence. The trial court ruled for landlord. Tenant appealed and lost. The trial judge didn't believe tenant's testimony. And landlord showed that tenant owned a luxury co-op apartment in Riverdale, was present there regularly, listed the Riverdale address as his residence in IRS and Surrogate's Court documents, spent less than 183 days in the Manhattan apartment, and used very little electricity at the Manhattan apartment during the time period in question.
