A Nassau property owner has been awarded a million-dollar bonus over the $1.2 million settlement he reached with the state for allegedly breaking his lease.
Tamar Zevi was awarded the $2.5 million in severance payments from the sale of her Nassau Beach home in 2015, The New York Post reported.
Zevi said the settlement, which the Nassau County Superior Court approved on Thursday, was a victory for Nassau, and the state.
She said she hoped the settlement would help Nassau recover more than $5 million from the developer.
Zavi, who lives in the property, was one of the more than 150 people who filed suit against the developer, G4S Group Inc., and the county.
The suit was settled for an undisclosed amount, the Post reported, citing a source with knowledge of the settlement.
Zivi said she is grateful for the money and is trying to move on.
She said the sale was “the last straw” for her.
Zervi, along with two others, sold the property for $5.6 million in July 2016.
She bought the property as a retirement home for her parents after a long career in the real estate industry.
