Brownstone Sold: How Quickly Can I Be Thrown Out?

Posted by Steven on May 05, 1999 at 17:49:41:

The 4-floor brownstone I live in in Carroll Gardens is in contract. We just found out about this last week. When the new owner takes title after the closing, how long can my family reasonably expect to stay while we're searching for a new place to live? What is the fastest time we would be given, if new owners are not understanding and they want us out ASAP? (They are getting rid of everybody, to occupy it as a single-family house, and the old owner had ended all our leases a year ago, to prepare for the possible sale.)

If we couldn't reasonably expect 2-3 months to get resituated, are there any tactics to pursue in Housing Court that might guarantee such a time frame? We don't want to stall the new owner, but we have two small kids and we don't want to have to accept a garbage apartment in what has become a tight market.

Thank you for any and all help offered!
