Description

Village Voice reports on the owner's use law- "based on the theory that a landlord's right to use his property for his own needs surpasses the rights of a tenant, even one who is protected by rent laws. While the owner's use law is not new-it has not even been modified since 1984- what is new is how frequently it is being used, usually with success." The owner's law also states that landlords who use it must live in the apartment themselves or have a family member live there for at least three years. Village Voice reports on how many landlord's are misusing this law and taking advantage of tenants.
