: There will probably be an appeal......but.....the two cases are very different, Ms Fuentes was living in an "Illegal" apartment and the sponsor was the landlord and gave her a rent stabilized lease, so she should of course maintain her rent stabilization status, because she did nothing wrong.

: Here we have a guy who has no good reason to leave his rent regulated apartment, but he CHOSE to take the money and why should he be allowed to keep his apartment, a deal is a deal.

I've interviewed lots of tenants in his position: he really did not "choose" to make this deal. They were harassed and intimidated and just wanted the stress to go away. They weren't thinking straight. You were able to withstand a lot more of this type of thing that most tenants, but then you did have a girlfriend and a lawyer, emotional and legal support.
