These are the reasons they may issue a notice to vacate; failing that the tenant is entitled to remain in the unit:
FOR WHAT REASONS CAN MY TENANCY BE TERMINATED? NYCHA can terminate your tenancy (evict you) for the following reasons: 1. Non-Desirability: Bad conduct (such as use or possession of drugs) by you or anyone living in your apartment or visiting frequently, showing: danger or nuisance to your neighbors, a sex or morals offense in or near a NYCHA project, danger to NYCHA employees, or damage to NYCHA property. 2. Breach of Rules and Regulations: Violation of any NYCHA rule or regulation by you or anyone living in your apartment. In such cases, NYCHA must give you a chance to correct the problem. 3. Chronic Breach of Rules and Regulations: Either (1) the repeated violation by you or anyone living in your apartment of NYCHA rules and regulations or (2) one repetition of a violation of a NYCHA rule or regulation that you previously told NYCHA was corrected. In these situations, NYCHA will NOT give you a second chance to correct the problem. 4. Chronic Delinquency in the Payment of Rent: Frequently paying your rent late, even if it is now paid up. 5. Non-Verifiable Income: Failure, neglect, or refusal to provide proof of your family’s annual income that is acceptable to NYCHA. 6. Assignment or Transfer of Possession: The tenant of record (who signed the lease) has moved out or no longer lives in the apartment, and someone else is living there. 7. Misrepresentation: Purposefully misstating to or hiding from NYCHA a vital fact about your eligibility for admission to or continued occupancy of NYCHA housing, or about your rent.
