Eviction shows up on credit reports? I'm in Manhattan and my landlord's trying to evict my whole building (pending a judgement by DHCR as to whether our building is stabilized). We have been on rent strike for 6 months (since he first took us to court with a holdover proceeding and the judge threw it out). And what about this paying double the old rent? I've never heard of this. What state are you from?
Also, has anyone out there been evicted after a rent strike and not had to pay back rent? i assume the judge has everything to do with this. I have the money and will pay it if i have to but these people do not deserve it.
: Are you sure you want to be evicted? Eviction not only shows up on credit reports, but in some states the hold over tenant is legally obligated to pay double the old rent, plus the landlord's court costs. If the landlord plays his cards right you would be out in less than a month.
