I just received a three day notice of default in rent. The letter from the LL states that if I don't pay up in 3 days he will commence summary proceedings to recover possession.
This is an on going overcharge complaint. I have asked in writing for months now that he just prove why the apt went up %300 from the last tenant (receipts, etc). He has given me nothing. I finally had enough of being ripped off and began to pay him what I calculated to be the actual rent plus a little more out of good faith (I told him this in writing several times).
The question: Is there anything I can do for now (besides pay up) or do I just wait for him to take me to court for non-payment and then counter sue?
This whole process in making me very nervous.
I live in a RS apt in Manhattan.
I have rental registration and DHCR rental history which are both in my favor. All letters have been certified, RR.
I have filed overcharge with DHCR.
