Eviction Delayed After DSS Approves Payment of Rent Arrears
LVT Number: #24834
Landlord sued to evict tenant for chronic nonpayment of rent. The court ruled for landlord, and tenant asked the court to delay execution on the eviction warrant. The court ruled against tenant, who appealed and won. Tenant was a long-term rent-stabilized tenant and showed that DSS had approved payment for the full amount of the back rent owed. The eviction was stayed to allow tenant to pay the arrears.
