In my landlord's case, the harassment is cleaverly cloaked by convenient
unrepaired leaks, noisy tenants that we believe were installed by the landlord
to make noise night and day like banging on the pipes, stomping on the floors,
tapping on the floors and walls, sometimes in the wee hours while your sleeping,
wiring problems etc. etc. There are 20 tenants in my building who are still
rent stabilized. The other twenty are much newer on the scene, paying a bloody
fortune, getting raked over the coals. The landlord's screwed up, 'cause he's
aggravated some of them. We've called the cops, they have showed up and quieted
the lovelies who are the landlord's appointed noise makers, but the crap resumes
in some way or form because these very cruel people are very clever.
And now for the question: What can effectively be done to quash the noise thing
and force the landlord to tow the line?
I've been instructed by the local precinct to apprise the landlord, which I have
done both by phone and certified letter. If in a week he doesn't respond
favorably, I'm to trek down to 111 Center Street here in Manhattan, go to the
2nd floor and follow the "Landlord/Tenant Court's" instructions. Has Anyone done
this? Will it work? Is throwing your a-hole landlord and his henchmen into a
giant blender and forgetting they're there permitted?
