New York Law Journal: Realty Law DigestAugust 27, 2014
In his weekly Realty Law Digest column, Scott Mollen analyzes three notable real estate decisions. In the first, 275-277 Realty LLC v. Lawrence-Harris, the court ordered a stipulation of a settlement vacated in which a tenant of a rent-stabilized apartment would pay more than $9,000 in order to restore the case to the calendar. In the second decision, Parkash 242 LLC v. Gyan, a tenant argued that she either did not sign the lease or alternatively, she was a minor at the time the lease was signed and was thereby relieved of any responsibility. In the third, North-Driggs Holdings, LLC v. Burstiner, a tenant and landlord disagreed on the timeline for which an apartment became rent-stabilized.
