You miss the point when it comes to NYC rent stabilized tenants whose buildings were bought by private equity firms with over leveraged loans PEs were hoping to cash in on the market rate apt boom However some of these new landlords are starting to default on their loans What is NYC's plan when the property goes to foreclosure?
I went through this with an last apartment last month. I could write a book about what I went through, it was horrific. The girl I was renting from hadn't paid the rent in months. I found out when the Marshall knocked on the door with an eviction notice. There is NO protection in New York City, they told me at the courthouse that I was SOL. Didn't matter that I had paid her the rent. We had a six day notice to get out.
She was mad because I opened the door when the Marshall came and blamed me for the eviciton??? We were threatend by her, she broke into the apartment twice, stole one of my roomates things, broke the front door down and the police were NO help at all. It was one of the worst experiences of my life and I almost left NYC for good because of it.
