I don't care if they are a month to month tenant. They were living there for 8 years and that does not constitute a month to month tenancy.
The person also has small children and Judges do not evict people who FAIL TO PAY RENT with children, let alone someone who was ambushed with a building sale. There was no PRIOR NOTICE given to the tenant that the landlord was going to sell the building.
The new owners can collect the rent until these people find a place. The Judge will not evict them with less than six months to find a place.
My knowledge comes from reading the law and sitting in on over 500 landlord tenant cases in the 5 boroughs of NYC. The simple truth is when you have children Judges do not evict until the tenant has found a place to live within around six months. If you know of a case, ED, where a Judge evicted a rent paying no problem tenant WITH CHILDREN from a building that was safe and sound AND WITHIN 30 DAYS I would appreciate you posting.
Hold out for more money !! Ed is wrong again.
