In Reply to: NYC Mediation Center info PLEASE! posted by lori on May 20, 1999 at 17:17:11:
: Could anyone please tell me anything about a tenant mediation center in NYC? My downstairs neighbor has declared a rent strike (to the landlord) and has threatened to take court action.
: His complaint is noise, and will pound on the ceiling if I so much as vacuum - at 4 in the afternoon on a weekday - I don't wear shoes, have TWO layers of foam below the carpet, and am in bed by 10 almost every night! He has even banged on the floor when I have been sitting on the couch reading.This was while my upstairs neighbor was playing music and entertaining. The guy is an unhappy person. Suggestions anyone?
I know someone who used such a thing in a roommate dispute: the mediation was connected to the Courts: this person moved from the bad roommate situation so I can't reach her but I think this might have been the mediation she was talking about: click below: http://ucs.ljx.com/cdrcp/NYCProgs.html (this is NYC, NYS also available: http://ucs.ljx.com/cdrcp/index.html )
She went downtown, in the court district, talked to a counselor(?), got a mediation date & 'summons' for her rooommate, everyone showed up & a decision was written down.
Post back: other people might be interested........
