This is for NYC- By stipulation, the court ordered that a tenant has the right to stay in the apartment through the month of July. The stipulation says that the tenant is to leave on or before July 31. On July 24 most of the tenant's furniture is moved out and on July 25 the landlord changes the lock on the apartment door so that the tenant can't get back in to get the rest of the tenant's belongings. The tenant has followed the stipulation but is locked out and can't remove anything from the apartment and can't contact the super. Is this legal? What can be done to get the rest of the tenant's belongings?
