Tenant's Son Didn't Prove Succession Rights to Public Housing Apartment
LVT Number: #30096
Public housing tenant's son claimed succession rights to tenant's apartment after tenant died. HPD ruled against tenant's son, who then filed an Article 78 court appeal to challenge HPD's decision. The court ruled against tenant's son, who appealed and lost. HPD had a rational basis for finding that tenant's son didn't prove that tenant's apartment was his primary residence from 2005 to 2007, two years before tenant's death.
