: I have a holdover preceeding against me claiming illegal sublet of my rent stabalized
: apt. I have provided adequate proof I am not subletting (Showed proof I live there and showed proof the alleged tenant does not). However the landlord continues to
: harrass me. At this point however I just want to give up and move out, it's not worth is. However the landlord who took me to housing court wants his lawyers fees paid to drop the case. Can he do that. I showed adeqate proof I lived there, he is the one pressing charges and I want out of this nightmare he even has a PI following me around. At my next holdover preceeding (first one was only last month) what can I say to the Judge to get me out of this nightmare without having to pay the legal fees of the person harassing me.
Don't have anymore verbal contact with the landlord and show your evidence to the judge...and yes since this happened to my sister. If you settle your waiving your rights and have to pay ALL the landlord's lawyers fees. DO NOT SETTLE. Your evidence should include some letters of people visiting you during the time you landlord claims you were subletting. And bring your friend with you and have him/her bring strong proof of were the've been residing.
