Kushner company regularly filed false work records

The Kushner Companies, the family business that Jared Kushner ran before joining his father-in-law in the White House, regularly filed false paperwork with New York City regulators, according to the Associated Press.

The more than 80 work permits, which applied to about 34 buildings in New York from 2013 to 2016, declared that the company had no rent-regulated tenants in the buildings, when in fact they had hundreds. The practice allegedly allowed Kushner Companies to quickly gentrify buildings even if they had rent-regulated apartments. None of the documents have Kushner’s signature on them, but were instead signed by the Kushner Companies’s chief operating officer or another employee.

If the forms had been filled out correctly, the company’s construction crews could have been subject to stricter oversight by the city, particularly to make sure that the company wasn’t harassing rent-regulated tenants in a effort to get them to move out. Tenants of some of the buildings told the AP that they did feel harassed by the construction.

One rent-regulated tenant said she was offered at least $10,000 to leave her East Village building amid construction that sometimes went on in the middle of the night. The man who offered her the money told her that, “I know it’s pretty horrible, but we can help you get out.” She sued the company — and won — instead. Another tenant claimed that Kushner Companies illegally tried to increase his rent by 60 percent and ultimately succeeded in clearing out all the other tenants in his building.
