Tenant's Daughter Gets Rent-Stabilized Apartment
LVT Number: #24655
Rent-stabilized tenant's daughter complained to the DHCR that landlord refused to give her a renewal lease in her own name after tenant died in November 2011. The DRA ruled for the daughter and ordered landlord to give her the renewal lease. Landlord appealed and lost. Landlord argued that the daughter failed to prove continuous, uninterrupted co-residency with tenant for two years before tenant died. Landlord claimed that the daughter only sporadically visited tenant at the apartment.
