Tenant's Daughter Can't Get Rent-Controlled Apartment
LVT Number: #26085
Landlord sued to evict rent-controlled tenant's daughter after tenant died. The daughter claimed succession rights. The court ruled for landlord after a trial. Tenant died in 2009. Landlord brought the eviction proceeding in 2012. Landlord showed that the daughter lived in another apartment between May 2007 and July 2008. The daughter got married in 2007 and signed a lease for a new apartment with her husband from August 2008 to July 2009. Her claim that she lived primarily in tenant's apartment instead of the one she rented with her new husband wasn't credible.
