Hamilton Heights Terrace Assoc.
Aurora Espillat Vargas & Sabrina Espillat
Tenant Substantially Won
Landlord's claim for non-payment and eviction dismissed due to insufficient notice to tenant regarding termination of subsidy and tenancy rights. Key Legal Points: VAWA notice not provided with termination or eviction notices, violating federal law. Notices lacked information about tenant's right to meet with manager, violating HUD regulations. Lack of proper predicate notice rendered landlord's case unviable.
