Zepher: your comment "I'm sure the bank's attorney knows to bring a deed to the eviction hearing" reveals that you do not understand the requirements of RPAPL 713.5. The law requires that a certified copy of the actual deed must be shown to the tenant BEFORE any lawsuits are started. The common sense purpose behind this law is so that a tenant will know with certainty that the person telling the tenant to move, who is probably a complete stranger to the tenant, is actually the new owner of the property. Thus, bringing the deed to a hearing, as you suggest, is too late and cannot cure the requirements of the law. As to your comment about the "irrelevant" factors -- as to the tenant's marital status and the fact that she has young children -- it was you -- not me -- who raised those factors. Finally, the entire tone of your comment to the tenant is condescending and caustic. A tenant is seeking advice about a jam she finds herself in through no fault of her own -- she does not say she has not been paying rent, so its safe to assume she has been paying her rent -- and your response is to give her a hard time, instead of compassion. Some smart person once said: if you have nothing nice to say, shut up!
