I am a tenant in a two family dwelling in Yonkers, NY. I have recently been served a restraining notice to garnishee Linda Dos Santos (my landlord) and have been requested by the lawyer of the Plaintiff to render all rent checks to the lawyer and not my landlord. Prior to receiving the Restraining Notice, I made a early rent payment for April, and have so advised the lawyer. I have also advised the lawyer that I have given notice to the
landlord of my plans on moving (landlord is currently in
foreclosure with bank, who is not the plantiff in this case).
The landlord has agreed that I can use my security deposit in lieu of May's rent.
The Lawyer for the plaintiff is mandating that I send my May rent check to him. I'll never get my security deposit back from the landlord. What are my rights?
