Landlord v. Tenant: October 2019
Rent-Stabilized Tenant Can’t Add Son to Parking Space Lease
Rent-stabilized tenant filed a lease violation complaint. Tenant claimed that landlord refused to offer a renewal lease for parking spaces on the same terms and conditions as contained in the expiring parking space leases. Tenant also claimed her son should be added to the parking space leases. The DRA ruled for tenant, finding that landlord never answered the complaint. Landlord appealed and won, in part. Landlord showed by mailing receipts that it had, in fact, answered the complaint.
