After Constance G. repeatedly failed to pay rent on time, her landlord, GIT LEB, LLC, filed a holdover proceeding to recover the apartment.
While the Kings County Civil Court granted Constance’s request to dismiss the landlord’s case, on appeal, the Appellate Term, Second Department, thought the 4 prior nonpayment proceedings filed against Constance and the 2 rent demands made by the landlord over a three-year period showed that the tenant was “chronically delinquent.”
(The AT2 was unconvinced that the lady withheld rent because her landlord failed to make repairs.)
That’s chronically bad.
