New York Law Journal: Realty Law Digest

February 4, 2015

In his weekly Realty Law Digest column (subscription required), Scott Mollen analyzes three notable cases. In LIDC I v. Sunrise Mall, the court ruled that the tenants failed to demonstrate that they are “prepared and have the ability to cure the rent default” and denied a Yellowstone injunction. In Newport Gardens v. McCoy, the court found that the stipulation signed by a pro se tenant who lived in an apartment for 28 years with her disabled son was “unduly harsh and unjust” because she was never advised of her legal rights. In DMF Gramercy Enterprises v. The Lillian Troy 1999 Trust, the court held that a landlord cannot withhold consent for tenant to operate sidewalk café because it was permitted in the lease.
