How Courts Decide Who’s a Nonprimary Resident
Many tenants take advantage of rent control and rent stabilization laws to use their apartments as a low-cost second home. They actually live elsewhere, but keep their New York City apartments for business or pleasure. As an owner, you don’t have to stand by as these tenants unfairly reap the benefits of rent control or rent stabilization. You can take action because unless a tenant uses his New York City apartment as his primary residence, he’s not entitled to either rent control or rent stabilization protections.
