: A holdover proceeding has been brought against me for failing to send my
: renewal lease to the landlord within the 60 day window stated in the
: rent stabilization code. My contention is that I've handed the lease back
: late every year for the last 8 and every year, the landlord has accepted it.
: In addition, the law states that a landlord must get the lease back to the
: tenant 30 days after receiving it; it took him 4 1/2 months to get it back
: this past year. Based on my "course of dealings" with the landlord, I
: contend that I should not be evicted because of this since the method of
: doing business has been the same every year. Does this make sense? It just
: so happens that I pay below market value for my apartment.
:I don't think you have too much to worry about but you should probably at least discuss you case with a tenant lawyer (if you can't afford to have one represent you). Give Met. Council a call (693-0550) or MFY (254 7240) and see what they have to say about it.
