Landlord v. Tenant: November 2017
Tenant Repeatedly Refused Access to Landlord
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant who repeatedly refused access for inspection and performance of repairs. The court ruled for landlord. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant argued that the housing court didn't give him a post-judgment opportunity to cure as required under Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law Section 753(4). But the appeals court ruled that the housing court exercised proper discretion.
