You were a legal aid attorney.....well you got what you paid for.

So do yourself a favor.... spend time tomorrow at DHCR and find out for yourself....why is the building NOT subject to stabilization?

How many apartments does it have? is the apartment legal? do you have the certificate of occupancy?

Holdover....that means staying past when you were supposed to leave...... were you given proper notice? why did they want you to move? Unless you have something to grab on to and delay your eviction, chances are all a judge might give you is an extra month or two to move..

: I was told by my Legal Aid Attorney that I will be evicted when this case goes to trial because the building is not subjected to rent stablized laws nor rent controlled laws and I never had a lease although I have been living in this apartment (NYC) for over 12 years. I heard he can do this by presenting an application called Holdover. The Attorney handling my case said Tenants can not win in Holdover cases. Is this true?
