Tenant's Son Can't Get Rent-Stabilized Apartment
LVT Number: #24731
Landlord, a cooperative shareholder, sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant's son after tenant died. Tenant claimed pass-on rights. The court ruled for landlord. The son appealed and lost. Tenant, who was elderly, had lived in the apartment for 30 years, and remained rent stabilized after the building converted to a co-op under an eviction plan. Her son claimed that a prior eviction proceeding on the same grounds had been dismissed and that the building's co-op conversion had been approved by the Attorney General based on fraudulent information submitted by the sponsor.
