I am a SRO in a hotel.
My landlord sued me for non-payment and sought eviction. 3 years ago I had filed bankruptcy which included rent arrears. My debts were discharged. Due to hotel reconstruction, I was/am eligible for rent credits. My landlord had applied those credits toward rent arrears that were discharged in bankruptcy court.
The court ruled in my favor that these rent arrears are not collectible, especially since the former landlord took no action when I filed bankruptcy.
The hotel manager told me yesterday that the current landlord can file a non-possessory judgment to collect these discharged rent arrears.
Is this true?? Under the agreement I have with the landlord I am supposed to move into a newly remodelled hotel room. Obviously, I am being 'warned' that further court action is coming my way.
Still, my question remains about him being able to a make claims for a non-possessory judgment.
Any advice, opinions-- are appreciated,
