It's a bit more complicated in terms of the actual default, but for purposes of this forum, I wanted just to assume that there is a default.

: If you have a pet and they have knowledge of it for 90 days, the super/doorman/landlord..... thenthey cant evict you or demand you get rid of the pet.

: Washing machine..if it was there in the apartment then it stays, but if you bought a Portable one and the landlord knows about it same deal as above....if you hired a plumber to permenatntly install it then you are violating the lease by illegal construction on the apartment..ahd the LL can get a notice to cure.
: But Ive read that if the Laundry Room which is included in your rent stabilized lease wasn't working for months,and with other tenants signed statements.. the Judge allowed the washing machine
: Lesbian roomate....pregnant......nope
: big screen LOUD tv...yup noise
: waterbed......well do you want to be sleeping under a TON of water...i wouldn't, unless you are living in a basement or ground floor apt., with a concrete slab under you.
: stuff damaging the walls guess you should pay for it unless the movers had insurance.

: Running a gentlemens club...what would a judge think?

: ---------------------------------------------------------

: : Okay, so you've now spent at least 10 seconds thinking about me and my apartment, but you haven't answered *my* question.
: : : : Why do you ask?

: : : Ok this is getting interesting..... was it a:

: : : Kitty cat?
: : : a Doggy woggy?
: : : a washing machine?
: : : a waterbed?
: : : a lesbian lover roomate?
: : : a big screen TV thats loud
: : : a Big china cabinet that damaged the walls getting it in your apartment?
: : : are you pregnant, and there is an adult only clause?

: : : see what the mind can think of when you dont explain it!!!!!

: : : ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

: : : : : Still No answer from you>>>>>>>>>

: : : : : what is he accusing you of? a notice to cure what? default of what?
: : : : :
: : : : : Has he accused others of the same thing?

: : : : : ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

: : : : : : I posted a message last week after having receive a notice of default from my landlord.

: : : : : : After some discussion with him, he has proposed that we do not have to cure the default, but in exchange he wants us to agree to vacate the apartment by July 2001 (one more year's renewal). He also claims that he needs this to be done by stipulation in court in order to protect his rights (with respect to having given us notice of the default). Is this ever done? Is it necessary to enter anything with the court?

: : : : : : The real situation is this: we're rent stabilized in a very high-end neighborhood in the city. given the market and how close we are to the $2000 destabilization threshhold, he wants us out in order to get the 20% vacancy increase and go destabilized.

: : : : : : Where do we stand? Also, is there any relevance or leverage to be gained by his having authorized agents to use a crowbar on our front door to get in the apartment on a day we were not notified of their desire to enter? Or that there is no fire escape (6-floor elevator brownstone building)? Or that when I signed the lease I never got a copy of the paperwork showing the increase from the prior (stabilized) tenant's rent? Should we fight him or make a deal?
