Succession Rights:

Tenant Wins Succession Rights After Trial

Upon the death of the tenant, the landlord sought to evict her son.  Grad & Weinraub represented the son at trial and established that he had succession rights to his mother’s apartment.  The Court found that, although he and his girlfriend had signed a lease for a different apartment in the same building, the son had in fact lived with his mother and had cared for her during her illness.  The landlord was required to offer the son a rent stabilized renewal lease for the apartment, and he could continue living in his home.
