ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The owners of a senior apartment complex in White Plains have agreed to pay 139 former residents who were forced to relocate because of a luxury renovation, under a legal settlement with the state.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced the resolution Tuesday night. His office says the owners of the Esplanade Senior Residents continued to rent to elderly tenants without revealing plans for a renovation that would force all the tenants to move out.

Under the terms of the settlement, the owners will pay a total of more than $528,000 to the tenants, some of whom moved in just weeks before the owners announced the renovation.

A message left with an attorney for the complex owners was not immediately returned Tuesday.
