In Reply to: Washing machine in apt... posted by Marty on September 24, 1997 at 20:25:03:
: I have had a washing machine - which I purchased - in my rent controlled apt.
: since 1992. Today (9/24/97) I received a notice from my landlord that
: it "violates my rental agreement" and that it must be removed in the next a
: three days.
: My question is: Do I have any grounds based on precedence?
: If not, isn't her time-frame for removal unreasonable?
: If so, how do I file a complaint/appeal?
Are you sure a washing machine violates your "rental agreement"? Most of the people I know in rent controlled apts. are able to have washing machines.
Has the super or owner seen the washing machine any time since 1992? I think there may be cases where the tenant did not have to get rid of the machine if the super saw it was there and said nothing about it, but I'm not sure about that so you should talk to a housing attorney.
