Nuisance Tenant Violated Settlement Agreement
LVT Number: 13031
(Decision submitted by Cary Seth Kletter of the Manhattan law firm of Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., attorneys for the landlord.) Landlord sued to evict tenant for creating a nuisance. Landlord and tenant signed a court-ordered settlement agreement in which tenant agreed to stop causing a nuisance. The agreement further provided that judgment would be entered in landlord's favor but that the eviction warrant would be delayed, provided that tenant complied with the agreement. If tenant created a nuisance again he was subject to eviction. Tenant later resumed the nuisance by repeatedly yelling in the middle of the night and disturbing other tenants. Landlord asked the court to vacate the delay of the eviction warrant. The court ruled for landlord.
