landlord change and non-payment

Posted by Mindy on April 19, 2000 at 17:35:48:

I am curently awaiting a petition for non-payment.

I live in a rentstabilized room in a hotel.

The current landlord is collecting payments incurred
for the period of Sep 98 through now, although I still
owe some rent for prior to Sep 98. Since receiving a
demand for payment I have paid additional rent and
should owe no more for Sep 98 to now.

However, during Sep 1998 the landlord bought out the
previous landlord to whom I owed some rent as well for part of 98.

My question is two-fold:

1. When I paid up the rent owed for Sep 98 and
now, could that money have been applied to my previous
balance, pre-Sep 98?

2. When ownership of the hotel/building changes, is the new owner obligated to inform tenants about about outstanding balances and attempt to collect.

Is there a way to find out if the new landlord bought
the Accounts Receivable alng with the hotel?

My basic concern is: could he have apllied rent paid between Sep 98 - present, as listed on the demand for payment, and applied it to ealier arrears under a different landlord
