: Do you think that by portraying this as some dark, vast conspiracy you can garner more interest for your cable TV show ?
: The example you gave of a holdover tenant is very poor. An illegal hold over is a very serious lease violation. I would certainly never want to rent to anyone who treated their lease and the LL's property with such contempt.
Two points in reply:
1. You are hysterical and assume that you know everything that every landlord does. Unless you are an omniscient god, please do not speak to what does not exist in the dark corners of your industry unless you have been in each and every one of them (bring proof). Otherwise, give it up. If you are an omniscient god, please report to Bellevue Hospital and tell them that you're there for the million dollars I left as an offering.
2. You are ignorant as well. A holdover proceeding due to the landlords desire to sell the property is not a serious violation of "the lease". You assume so very much in your statement, which shows the absolute necessity for accurate information. If you would have bothered to learn more about Andrea's situation, you would have learned that it was illegality and inconsideration by the landlord that complicated the matter. Your industry is packed with small minded, ignorant individuals willing to commit criminal acts at a whim. While there are landlords and real estate agents who are pillars of integrity, there are many who are just plain criminals.
For instance, your casual comment about 'informal networking' has in the past been used in Park Slope to criminally racially discriminate against blacks and hispanics. Conspiracies don't have to be large to be of interest, but in your industry the size of the conspiracies have real undeniable potential. There are even cases of landlords accused of murdering tenants in this city. Or is your head in the sand about that issue as well?
