collecting rent overcharges

Posted by dina on October 29, 1998 at 19:23:02:

I organize tenant associations in Queens and Manhattan. Several tenants in one building were awarded rent overcharges by DHCR. The tenants have not been able to collect the overcharges because the landlord keeps changing the name of his management company. This affects the collection of overcharge and treble damages because the sheriff will not seize funds if the bank account name and the name on the judgement order does not match up. This is the case even if the landlord is the same for all the different management names he has come up with.

Any ideas besides a civil court action? Any action that can be taken without involving an attorney?
