NYCHA Legally Terminated Tenancy for Chronic Rent Delinquency
Facts: The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) charged a resident with chronic rent delinquency. At a hearing, the assistant site manager testified that the resident had not paid rent for almost two years.
The resident testified that NYCHA “listed” her as a “move-out” since she transferred to another unit, and she hadn't received any rent statements for several years. She also testified that the management office changed her lock and that she was on disability during the time period when she didn't pay rent.
