Landlord v. Tenant: August 2014
Primary Residence: Tenant Must Submit to Independent Medical Exam
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant based on nonprimary residence. Landlord claimed that tenant lived in New Jersey and sublet the apartment without landlord’s permission. Tenant claimed that he was away from the apartment temporarily for medical reasons and that landlord was retaliating against him based on tenant’s rent overcharge complaint. Landlord asked the court for permission to conduct an independent medical exam of tenant. The court ruled for landlord.
