Tenant Can't Vacate Stipulation
LVT Number: 11442
(Decision submitted by Michael R. Cohen of the Manhattan law firm of Kucker Kraus & Bruh, LLP, attorneys for the landlord.) Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. Tenant and landlord signed a court-ordered stipulation agreeing that tenant would move out. Tenant later asked the court to vacate the stipulation, claiming that she was only 19 years old and didn't understand the stipulation. The court ruled against tenant. Tenant didn't claim any confusion and the stipulation was clearly written. There was no reason to vacate the stipulation.
