As per Lilly's response earlier, the landlord must actually move a relative into your apartment if indeed your lease was not renewed for that reason.
My suggestion is that you keep track of the apartment--and if indeed a non-relative was put in the apartment, sue for damages. Your non-renewal would be an illegal eviction.

: My lease was not renewed in a Brooklyn, NY apartment that is rent stabilizes because the Lanlord's son was going to move in. Because I suspected he was not really going to move in, I fought it and lost. I finally moved out on June 1of 2001 and now in the middle of October, the apartment is still not occupied and is "being renovated" as I suspected in order to jack up the rent for the new non-relative tenant. What is a resonable or fair amount of time that the owner has to have his son move in and how long must his son live in that apartment?
