Tenants' Daughter Gets Rent-Controlled Apartment
LVT Number: 19423
Landlord appealed a DHCR decision that tenant had pass-on rights to her parents' rent-controlled apartment. The court ruled against landlord, finding that the DHCR's decision was reasonable. Landlord appealed and lost. Tenant submitted sufficient documentary proof that she had lived in the apartment with her parents for two years before her parents moved out. Landlord wasn't able to disprove tenant's claim.
