court settlement agreement.......

Posted by artie on June 22, 2000 at 09:07:46:

A court settlement was agreed upon by me and my landlord for back payment arrears. The stipulations of the settlement was that the landlord would fix the repairs necessary in my apartment by two days after the court date(LAST sATURDAY). The super of the building came last night, but after he finished and left, I realized that the problem was not fixed at all. He only created another problem. The judge told me that if the repairs were not complete by the said day(last Saturday) to come back and speak with the Pro-Se attorney and enter a complaint against the landlord. I am sure that the super of the building is not certified to do thses works in the building. My question is this, if I go today and enter my complaint against the landlord, can I withhold rent until the new court date. Since the repairman(the super) was (5)days late in even coming to look into the problem, and also that the repairs were incomplete, is the settlement void. I am in Brooklyn, NY, and live in a rent-stabilized apartment. Can anyone help asap, I am planning on going to file my complaint today.
