Tenant's Daughter Gets Rent-Stabilized Apartment

LVT Number: #30243

Rent-stabilized tenant's daughter complained that landlord refused to give her a renewal lease after tenant died. Landlord claimed that the daughter didn't prove succession rights. The DRA ruled for tenant's daughter and directed landlord to give her a renewal lease. Landlord appealed and lost. The daughter had submitted to the DRA a birth certificate listing tenant as her father, tenant's 2016 death certificate listing her as his daughter, and two years of documents listing the apartment as tenant's residence.
