He's right ... the landlord doesnt want your money he wants your apartment,
Theres money to be made.. rennovations vacancy allowance....$3000 goumet stoves to put in your apt, marble bathroom and kitchen parquet floors, ....anything to get the rent over $2000
And the landlord will use ANYTHING you say against you in a court of law....
Trust me they will....
: the landlord owes you the interest, except for 1% which he can keep. translation: if interest rate (in seperate interest-bearing acoount the law requires him to put your security in) is 3.3%, you get 2.3% and he gets 1%.
: the rules are probably on http://www.tenant.net/ somewhere: start at NY Tenant Info.
: you can counterclaim money he owes you, like this interest. please read about Housing Court asap: http://www.tenant.net/.
: and: stop telling him about your health and money problems: he's just going to use that against you in court. he wants your apt, not the money. so either find some and pay it before the 3 days are up or get ready: you're in for a bumpy ride. learn more about this now.
: ps: isn't post-dating a check illegal? it was not a good idea, in any case.
