: The apt was rented to me dirty
: All fixtures (light, toilet seat) was not provided upon commencement of lease.
: Apt was broken into.
: Had an extreme leak which the landlord did not respond to.
: All documentation (stabalization rider) has not been returned by landlord.
: Is there any recourse against either the landlord or broker for this? Please hellp.

I hate to say this, but welcome to NYC where this kind of landlord behavior
give landlords a bad name. Chances are you have no recourse against the
broker, but check on what he represented to you. If he new or should have
known of these pre-existing conditions, then you might seek your fees back
in small claims court or ask the Attorney General's office about making
a complaint. Don't expect too much from the AG's office considering the
current holder of the office (not that Democratic AGs were any better).
Of course yu have all recourses open to NYC stabilized tenants and you
will find much info on our web pages.
