Tenant Property in Public Areas of Building

Posted by Nochum Klein on July 26, 1997 at 23:49:49:

There are many families with young children and babies in my 4 storybuilding. Tenants have always kept strollers, baby carriages, and thelike in a public area of the building under the staircase where it is notan obstruction.Building management, citing a Housing Preservation & Development (HPD)violation that none of the tenants have actually seen, has announcedthat they will begin requiring tenants to remove these objects.Management has stated their intent to remove these objects if the tenantsdon't. There are pregnant women in our building who would be required todrag single/double strollers up four flights of steps.The question is: a) Does the management have the authority to remove tenant property? b) Since there is nothing in our leases relating to this, and tenants have been using the areas below the stairways for this purpose for many, many years, might we be able to force management to find another method of coming into compliance?Thanks for any help!Nochum
