In rapidly changing neighborhoods, like South Williamsburg, low-income families struggle to stay in their affordable homes. When a leaseholder passes away or moves out, remaining family members are left vulnerable to harassment and eviction. Succession rights allow families in rent-stabilized, rent-controlled, and Mitchell-Lama apartments to pass on their homes by proving their family relationship and that the apartment is their home. Pass It On! is a colorful guide to the succession process in both English and Spanish.
