a few questions about holdover evictions

Posted by Elizabeth on August 18, 2001 at 17:04:43:

Can anyone share their experience on how long a holdover eviction can take in a non stabilized, legal 3 family building in Brooklyn?

1. How long?
- What is a common amount of time that a judge can set for a move out date? 3 months? 6 months?
- Can this be appealed?
- If yes, what are some reasons that would hold up legally for extending the move out date?

2. What kind of judgments?
- Can the court set a judgment like this:
tenant has 6 months to move out and during that time does not have to pay rent?
- Or like this:
tenant has 3 months to move out and has to pay double the rent?

3. Pay rent during eviction?
- When a landlord accepts rent after serving a termination notice, that effectively creates a monthly lease and negates the termination notice and the landlord would have to start over again with a new termination notice.
But does a tenant have to pay rent during the holdover eviction? Meaning the time from when the court sets a move out date until the actual move out.

4. Tenant pays landload's court costs?
- I read something in another post about a tenant having to pay the landlord's lawyer's fees? Is that for real?

5. On credit report?
- Does a holdover eviction judgement go onto a credit report?

Thanks very much
