Having to Pay WithHeld "BackRent": The Exceptions

Posted by David on January 12, 1999 at 14:00:01:

Before the "new laws" came into effect, I saw two women on a cable access show, from a group that
assists tenants at the housing courts (they are situated in the building), and they were outlining
things about how housing court operating would be different in lew of the new laws. They said that
tenants would no longer be able to withhold rent until a decision had been made in their case, except
for a few situations, one of which was if the status of the building was in question. I need to have this
verified again. Can anyone state me the part of the new law, or whatever additional policies which were
given to govern them, that I am referring to? I think people (and their lawyers) are unaware of these
exceptions and need to be using them. Lord knows that the courts won't tell us about them.
