that slippery Mazzola case ...

Posted by chelsea on July 01, 2001 at 19:08:05:

(This is a response to an archived posting from New York Tenant re Ram 1 vs. Mazzola)

>In an article in the real estate section, The New York Times didn't understand the limited significance of a decision
on a tenant's pre-answer motion to dismiss.

>Despite the headline in The Times article, the housing court judge didn't rule that the tenant could be evicted.

What was the headline? Was it on the web site? I'm not finding any article on the case that ran in the real estate section.

>Can the landlord evict the tenant? DHCR's final regulations -- as opposed to its proposed regulations -- would
seem to indicate that the tenant can't be evicted.

This sounds very, very interesting, about the difference in the final version. Could you give more details please?

>Can the roommate recover the overcharges, or even treble damages?

Has anyone tried?

>Will the regulation be applicable to existing roommate agreements? In the Ram 1 case, this particular roommate agreement was entered into after the effective date of the new DHCR regulation.
