Judge denies ERAP stay; LL seeks use for family member

Postby TenantNet » Wed Jul 20, 2022 1:36 pm

The judge denied a one year stay (landlord accepted ERAP money in January 2022) based on the owner's personal use exception. The owner seeks to reclaim the unit for personal use of his daughter, and the building has less than four units. The judge also denied tenant's motion for discovery. This decision does not evict the tenant; that will be determined at trial.

Some tenant attorneys have suggested this decision is weak and appealable.
