Tenant's Son Can't Get Rent-Stabilized Apartment
LVT Number: 19212
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant's son after tenant died. The son claimed succession rights to the apartment. The court ruled for landlord. The son appealed and lost. Evidence submitted at trial showed that tenant lived in the apartment until he died in 2004. There was no proof that tenant's son lived with tenant in the apartment for the two-year period immediately before tenant's death.
