In Reply to: Legal fees. Landlords chances to collect their legal fess from tenant posted by marta on February 10, 2000 at 18:04:31:
: 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?
If the landlord won, the case must be over with. Any legal fees would be listed on the decision, even if only to say who gets them. Why not take all your court papers to the pro se attorney at housing court and ask him to read them for you to confirm this.
