Bronx Housing Court Woes!

If you are a small landlord in Bronx County, you are in for a real treat.
Surprise! The Bronx County Housing Court is not your friend
Should you wish to evict a tenant for any reason whatsoever, or for no reason, the law now requires you to give at least 90-day notice if tenant has resided 2 years in that apartment

Court is Open for Non-payment and Holdover Eviction Cases


An update for all of my Landlords. Court is open. So, yes, we have been filing 30-, 60-, and 90-day predicate notices all along, as well as your Section 8 certifications for New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) cases. We’ve been filing non-payments and holdovers in the Bronx and in Mount Vernon continuously.

Who will you nominate as the executor of your will?

Never, Ever UnStaple a Will

This morning I received a call from somebody whose parent had passed away this year.

She told me that she found the Last Will & Testament of the parent.

I asked her if she could bring me the Will so I could go over it

She volunteered that she was about to take the Will apart to make me a copy

I replied, DON’’T DO THAT Do Not take the staples out of that Will !
