Seems like they're going after people who were late before the storm.

Could have been solved by condemning the semi-habitable buildings until they were properly repaired. I know somebody who knows the guy responsible for major condemnations in NYC. If he shows up at your apartment building, big trouble.

Of course condemning the buildings brings its own set of problems, but the rent should stop coming due.

I ain't got no job, therefore I ain't go no money to pay the rent.

*begin whining* "but we're just charging what the market will bear?" *end whining"

Greedy farks.

These tenants need a committed advocate on their side.

Mayor Bloomberg can't be supporting this. NYC residents pay more taxes than God. Where is the support for these victims?

-Now they got to come up with the housing authority's money every month.

"Lost your job? Fark you, pay me. Place got hit by a hurricane? Fark you, pay me."

Might want to reassess the direction of your outrage. This is public housing. It's the city government that is evicting these people.

I'm constantly amazed at how people think they world should stop until they are ready to resume "normal" life after a calamity event. As a debt collector my clients definitely make special considerations for those impacted, but dont sit here expecting you can jsut resume paying your bills whenever you feel like it.

The "entitlement" behavior of America is alarming.

It seems pretty clear to me that they'd be clearing out the rabble even if there was no storm. You don't hire a process server to put out eviction notices mere days after the rent is late (this was 4 days after Sandy). You've got to be late for a couple weeks in my experience. If my tenant was 4 days late with their rent, they'd get an email, not an eviction notice.

And if they did get an eviction notice after 4 days, the landlord would be breaking the law.

Pic #2: Money for tattoos - No money for rent.

That being said, if a dwelling is uninhabitable, you may not charge rent for it.

If the dwelling is habitable and you have a lease, rent is due.

It's not rocket surgery.

They didn't suddenly decide to give out notices, the people who got them 4 days after the hurricane were probably MONTH'S behind on their rent already. Great article for making it seem like the owners are at fault rather than the people who figured they didn't need to pay at all.

1. Three day notice after the third day, according to a lease when rent due on 1st.
2. Eviction Filed...Court Fees...Court date 1 month out (depending on state.)
3. Tenant responded to Eviction, hearing set oh another month out.....

Landlord 0 Rabble 2 months free rent

In my state, it's 3 days. But, as a practical matter, if you've had a tenant that has paid on time every month for over a year, and they're 4 days late, you don't instantly start with the eviction, you try to talk to them first. If it continues for a few extra days beyond that, then you file the eviction. Evicting and finding a new tenant is EXPENSIVE.

FTA: Yet on Nov. 2, process server George Rodriguez arrived at Surfside around 9 a.m. to hand out "Notice of Petitions for Non-Payment" to several tenants who owed rent prior to the storm.

If you look on the second page of the article, (image below) the notices are stamped filed in the Kings County Civil Court on October 23, 2012. Hurricane Sandy made ground on October 25, 2012. So these eviction actions were pending prior to Hurricane Sandy, even if they were not posted until a couple of days after. It is clear that the Hurricane had nothing to do with the tenants' failure to pay rent.

That answers my question: How are tenants at private buildings given (by law) free rent, but public housing has to pay? Answer: I'm reading misleading bullshiat on the internet.

So in the 4 days between the storm and the eviction notice they became months behind in payment, received numerous warnings, and finally got evicted.

Otherwise, I'm not sure what Sandy had to do with anything here.

Put them directly in the hands of the tenants, on a per-building basis, as cooperatives.

Seems like they're going after people who were late before the storm.

"She immediately went to court, where the clerk told her to get documents showing that her rent was, in fact, up to date. She returned Nov. 29 with the paperwork, and now awaits NYCHA's next move."
