Tenant's Sister Gets Renewal Lease
LVT Number: 15831
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant's sister after tenant moved out. The sister claimed pass-on rights. The court ruled for tenant's sister. She and her children had lived in the apartment with tenant for six years. She paid the rent, dealt with building employees and management, signed many of the renewal leases, and responded to prior court cases started by landlord. She was entitled to a renewal lease as a remaining family member.
