Tenant's Niece Can't Get Apartment
LVT Number: #24525
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant's niece after tenant died. The niece claimed she was entitled to succession rights. The court and appeals court ruled for landlord. The niece appealed again and lost. The niece failed to prove that she lived with tenant for at least two years immediately before tenant moved out of the apartment to go into a nursing home, where she died several months later.
