In our continuing series “Eviction Case of the Week,” each week we will discuss an interesting Landlord-Tenant case in which we were involved as counsel or observed while appearing in the Courts.
CASE OF THE WEEK
In the Village of Mamaroneck Justice Court in Westchester County, a residential tenant client of ours was a Respondent in a Holdover Eviction Case.
Upon our review of the Petition, we noted that the alleged predicate notice furnished with the Notice of Petition and Petition appeared to be defective as the tenant was not served with sufficient written notice terminating the tenancy (either prior to or following the expiration of a lease) [RPL § 226-c]
Our tenant client was able to leverage that technical error to obtain a favorable resolution of the landlord’s claims.
