In housing court in New York City and in landlord-tenant court in the rest of the state, if you pay the amount specified in the court's order and judgment on or before the date that it is due, you will not be evicted.
If you made a defense and/or counterclaim for repairs needed in your apartment, or in the public parts of the building, and the judge finds in your favor to any extent, the net amount of the court's order and judgment in favor of the landlord should reflect an amount that the court has awarded you as a rent abatement. The court could also order the landlord to do certain repairs that you requested.
: When housing court finds that the plaintiff is
entitled to restitution, but did not state that
defendant has to move, must I as the defendant
refer back to the oringial complaint and pay said amount. And if I as the defendant pay the amount
as stated, is it required for me to move or just
pay back rent owed, and can I still hold
planitiffs for repairs and put money into court
until repairs have been made.
