http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46733 Judge Katz PETITIONER LANDLORD’S summary holdover action alleged that respondent tenant violated: Rent Stabilization Law �2524.3(f) by failing to sign a renewal lease; RSL �2524.3(b) by failing to abate water leaks that damaged her own and other apartments; and RSL�2524 (E) by refusing the landlord access to make repairs. The court dismissed the petition due to the landlord’s inability to prove its allegations. It found that the renewal lease was untimely and mailed to an improper address despite the landlord’s notice of respondent’s post office box. The court also noted that respondent had made several complaints to the Housing Preservation Department about the water leaks and that the resulting housing violations remained uncorrected for at least two years. It also found that respondent telephoned a handyman, referred by her landlord, who effected repairs in her apartment and that habitability and other defenses in other nonpayment actions undermined her landlord’s allegations of nuisance.
