Court Vacates Judgment and Eviction Warrant in Nonpayment Case
LVT Number: #30537
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for nonpayment of rent. Landlord and tenant signed a settlement agreement in court and tenant agreed to pay back rent by a certain date. The court later granted tenant's request to extend the time to complete payment. Tenant then obtained an attorney and made a second request to vacate the judgment and eviction warrant, and to submit an answer and counterclaim to landlord's petition. The court ruled for tenant and reopened the case.
