In Reply to: a few questions about holdover evictions posted by Elizabeth on August 18, 2001 at 17:04:43:

Are you sure its a 3 family legal building is the mulitiple dwelling registration number posted, in the hallway or near the mailbox?

How long can a judge make you move, if you have no legitimate reasons to withold the rent then a couple of days till a marshall evicts you.

Good reasons to extend move out date, your parents are dying or are on deaths door would be a great one to use, how can a judge force you to move quickly under those conditions.

YOU the Tenant will owe for each and every day in occupancy, PLUS if the judge decides the landlord's legal fees as well.

And if you sign a stipulation to pay the landlord on xxxx dates to catch up and dont, the stip is VIODED and the landlord can file for immediate evcition.

The holdover and any judgement (money you owe) will go on your credit report and you will have bill collectors after you soon enough...

I guess in the end its not worth fighting, unless your conditions are so horrible that the judge would be shocked, and then maybe you would get some free rent out of this.

But it really has to be a horrible apartment.

: 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
