: Sorry I'll try to be more descriptive. The building is a co-op building and my
: landlord owned the apt. I rented plus at least one more in the building. He
: was also the super of the building and I think worked for the management
: company. So... why do I serve the present tenants who live in the apt. that
: I once lived in a restraining order? I really just want to gain access to the
: landlord's joint bank account or else I will pursue the direction of taking the
: money out of his wages on a weekly basis.

: Any hints about how I get a turnover?

: thanks for your interest.

Just as you can go after your landlord's wages (income), you can also go after his rents from both apartments that he owns (also income). You will be allowed to take only a small percentage of his wages, but you should be able to take all of his rental income. You might also be able to file judgment liens against both of his apartments. And if your landlord has bank or other institutional financing (mortgages) for his apartments, you might be able to get the bank to put pressure on him to pay you.
