For rent stabilized apartments, any “family member” of the tenant may have the right to a renewal lease (rent stabilization) when the tenant dies or permanently leaves the apartment. The right to a renewal lease is granted if such family member resided with the tenant in the apartment as their primary residence for two (2) years immediately prior to the death of the tenant, or permanent leaving of the apartment, by the tenant. The family member may also be granted the right to a renewal lease if he/she resided with the tenant from the inception of the tenancy or from the commencement of the relationship.
