SUCCESSION RIGHTS IN LEASES
For rent stabilized and rent controlled apartments throughout New York State, a "family member" of the tenant may have the right to a rent stabilized renewal lease or protection from eviction in an apartment under rent control when the tenant dies or permanently leaves the apartment. The definition of "family member" is broad and various factors are to be considered.
