New York Law Journal: Realty Law Digest

January 14, 2015

In his weekly Realty Law Digest column (subscription required), Scott Mollen analyzes two notable landlord-tenant cases. In Shearin v. Back on Track Group, the court held that the use of a bunk bed and closet space constituted a tenancy, rather than a license, even though there were numerous use restrictions. In WRG Acquisition v. Strasser, the court held that a “live-in-aide” whose presence and income need not be disclosed, did not qualify for succession rights to a rent stabilized apartment.
