Can a landlord sue for damages in NYC court for a NJ apt.?

Posted by HollyB on May 12, 1999 at 11:29:52:

Landlord is suing for damages in NYC Small Claims court for an apartment owned in NJ. The address given on the summons is landlord's work address in NYC. Address stated on lease was in NJ. Can landlord claim NYC work/privately owned business is the property owner even when the address given for leasor was a residential address in NJ?

Tenant moved out of NJ apartment 13 months ago after living in unit for 4 years. Co-op went bankrupt. Natural wear and tear were only "damages" plus building maintenance errors (eg. maintenance did not finish repair job). Does landlord have the right to sue for damages to an apartment vacated 13 months ago in neighboring state? Does ex-tenant have any rights that will support defense even if the apartment is currently vacant? Does landlord have the right to sue for damages in NJ court? What (if any) are the statute of limitations for this kind of case?
