Landlord v. Tenant: November 2019
Landlord Must Accept Section 8 Vouchers
The NY Attorney General sued landlord and sought an injunction barring landlord from not accepting federal housing subsidized vouchers as a form of rent. The AG claimed that landlord’s refusal to accept the vouchers violated the town of West Seneca’s fair housing code, which prohibited discrimination based on income source. The court granted landlord’s request to dismiss the case and vacated the injunction.
