Rent stabilized tenant in NYC. Had lease, right now lease has expired. Landlord recently offered renewal but did not follow guideliness (offered renwal two months after the expiration of the lease). The original lease has clause stating that the successful party in a legal action may recover reasonable legal fees. The tenant's complaint involved needed repairs, the landlord prevailed in court due to a technicality, but the tenant's complaint was a legitimate one. What are the chances of tenant being ordered to pay landlord legal fees after the landlord prevailed in court?
