In Reply to: When can landlord evict based on plans to renovate? posted by Michael Kraft on June 06, 2001 at 13:07:26:

You're going to have to do some of your own digging.

I remember that was an issue in the last rent law renewal. The LLs wanted to be able to deal with a situation where they have a building empty down to one or two apartments. The law gave them the ability to force the tenant to accept some sort of equitable relocation (ie. similar stabilized apartment in the same neighborhood). I don't remember anything about it having to be owned by the same LL.

You might want to find this in the stabilization code itself for the actual language.

: In which instances?

: Also, do you mean relocate to another apartment in a building that the landlord owns &/or elsewhere? -- i.e., does the landlord have an obligation to provide the alternative apartment if he forces you to move based on plans to 'renovate' the apartment?

: Thanks.
