Lawsuit: Woman Dupes Elderly, Stroke-Stricken Dad Into Unwittingly Signing Over 7-Unit Harlem Building Worth $2+ Million While He Lay Recovering In Hospital Bed

In New York City, the New York Post reports:
  • A Manhattan man says his daughter waited until he had a stroke and then swiped the rental building he owns out from under him.

    Richard Tucker, 72, has lived in the West 121st Street brownstone since 1985, taking it over from his mom Lilian when she died in 2013.

    The building, worth $2 million to $3 million, has seven single-room-occupancy units and brings in about $4,500 a month in rental income, but Tucker claims in court papers he hasn’t seen a penny of that cash since Angelique Jackson-Tucker had him sign over the deed a year ago.

    He didn’t know what he was signing, Tucker says in a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit he filed last week against his daughter.

    When he had a stroke in January 2015, Jackson-Tucker and the family’s attorney, Roland Brewster, came to his bedside at Mount Sinai Hospital, he claims.

    Tucker “had no idea of what he was signing on Jan. 13, 2015, but he recognized his daughter and the longtime family attorney,” according to court papers.

    Brewster denied wrongdoing and insisted Richard Tucker “was competent at all times that I’d seen him,” the attorney told The Post.

    Jackson-Tucker declined comment, saying she wasn’t aware of a lawsuit.
