Lease expiration and rent withholding

Posted by Christina R. on October 11, 1999 at 23:26:50:

I live in NYC in a rent stablized pre-war building with approximately 66 units. My written lease expires in November. My problem is I have been withholding my rent since January to force my landlord to make building-wide repairs. My landlord, however has not sent me a dispossess in all that time. If I renew my lease, will I have to pay all back rent? If I don't renew, can I be evicted before I get a chance to state my case in court. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.o
