I haven't asked about other buildings that the _sponsor_ has, but I have
asked about other units in the building that he owns - no luck.

The tenant has been offered my temp apt and turned it down. He actually wants
a studio apt in the bldg, but the sponsor won't give it to him since he wants
him out.

The legal advice we were seeking was between us and the landlord. Breach of
contract, whatever. The attny basically said that there's nothing really worth
suing for, but we would get whatever we went for - not much to claim as
damages, at this point. But the extra expenses you mentioned were part of what
we'd go for.

I'm not sure what we should do about this, though. You're probably right about
the time span, but I can't walk away yet. I'm hoping that the tenant's reaction
to the lawsuit will indicate what to expect. If he doesn't have the money for
an attny, he may freak out and go. If not, it's back to the classifieds for me...

Do you know how long it usually takes papers to be served? I'm expecting it to
happen sometime this week if the mgmt co started it last Thursday.
