: The 80% is not a law: it's in most standard leases, including your proprietary lease from the sound of it...

i agree with jj on this one, i've never heard of it as a 'law', but have seen it in many multi-floor leases. my question would be who made up the 'house rules', the co-op board or the landlord? whoever made up the rule is the one to enforce it. 'sufficient padding' is probably a technicality that wouldn't make any difference if it is not mentioned in the 'house rules'.

as far as the lawyer, if it went to court, the lawyer should have requested damages in the settlement for his fees, if it didn't fo to court, i doubt you can do much of anything about it.
