New York City Housing Authority: Managed By Borinquen Plaza I Houses
Capell, Heela D.
In this illegal lock out case brought against NYCHA, the court declines to restore petitioner to possession. Here petitioner was the son of tenant of record who moved in to help his ailing mother over two years before the lock out occurred but never asked to be added to the household and “kept a low profile” although he did have limited interactions with NYCHA management. The court finds under recent AT, 2nd Dept caselaw that he lacks standing to be restored as a licencee, rejecting the HSTPA RPAPL 768 argument petitioner put forward.
