The state of New York opened an investigation Monday into whether the real estate company owned by Jared Kushner's family harassed tenants in order to push them out of rent-stabilized residences in Brooklyn.

[post_ads]New York's Tenant Protection Unit is seeking to determine if Kushner Companies violated state housing laws at the Austin Nichols House in Williamsburg.

The office of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the probe of the company, which is owned by the family of Kushner, senior White House adviser and son-in-law to President Donald Trump.

"Governor Cuomo has zero tolerance for tenant abuse of any kind and we will aggressively take on landlords who try to intimidate people out of their homes," New York State Homes and Community Renewal Commissioner RuthAnne Visnauskas said.

TPU said the probe was instigated by a lawsuit filed by tenants of the Austin Nichols House, who said Kushner Companies undertook construction projects that released "dangerous toxins into the air and created unlivable conditions for tenants, including vermin and excessive construction noise."
