But the Getachews claim that Rutkowski lied when he said the pool, hot tub and waterfall "were in good working condition," with their complaint alleging that Rutkowski knew there were problems with the pool before signing the lease.


Oh the huge manatee.

Let everyone involved in this story be some of the first people's heads affixed onto pikes.

Can't he hire some dudes with baseball bats to "evict" them? Have the thugs wear Disney costumes while beating the squatters.

lawyer A. Mark Getachew and his wife, Denora.

Denora and Mark - a lawyer at Willkie Farr & Gallagher - "are the singularly least professional, least honest ..., least moral people I have dealt with in my 40 plus years of professional life," the affidavit alleges.



the guy is a lawyer, but i find it hard to believe another lawyer hasn't met at least some other lawyers that were worse

Obviously.

Rents and mortgages should have been cancelled back in April.

Also, shut the fark up. You are in no way hurting for money.

Two rich people throwing allegations at each other.  He's a squatter, he's a slumlord, whatever.

Meanwhile, both are living much better than 99% of the people reading this.

Everyone involved there sucks.

As does anyone out there manipulating a provision for desperate people out of work just to screw their landlord out their owed rent.

Fulfilling your obligations & paying your bills, if you possibly can, is always smarter and never circles around to ruin your life. Screwing people over 'cause you can right now? Not so much.

I get that a lot of you guys hate landlords, but farking them over constantly will cause rents to increase as rental properties become scarce and landlords hedge their bets against squatters.

In this case, it looks like its really a dispute about repairs to the property being credited against rent, not covid relief.

shelling out 45k on a short term rental for repairs ? Ya that sounds like BS. No one would do that.


sounds like a background check would have saved this guy from renting to these folks if they were pulling the same shyte in the hamptons as alleged in the article

According to the article the tenants moved in during June, well after COVID started (and your April line in the sand) so they have no reason to not pay.

The renters are simply deadbeat scammers, not some working class person who got laid off in March and can't find a job to pay rent on a 900 sq ft apartment.

No empathy for these folks. Throw both families in a boxing ring with weapons and let them go at it, like in Escape From New York.

The article says that the tenants have actually been making repairs to the property to the tune of $46,356.22.

It says the regular repairman of the landlord would have been able to do the repairs for $2000. So either they got soaked or they brought in a friend who gave them a fake invoice to soak the landlord and will split the money with them.

What do you think "no eviction moratorium" means?
Or is this just another opportunity for to make an irrelevant post?

At this point, I say fark inflation. Tonge in check, just a little. We gave banks a huge farking bailout in 2008 and 9. Given a choice, I would rather bail them our on frozen mortgage and rent payments than the 1.7 trillion dollars we threw at the stock market to get positive gains for 15 whole damn minutes.

I saw someone post here a while back, or perhaps it was some dbag in an article linked here, that he was not going to pay his rent "in support of those who couldn't."  Because that makes sense lmao.
 
2020-10-22 12:48:52 PM  
So landlord rents out the other half of the "mansion" to lower-income families. $10-$20/month. Yes even low-income people shouldn't be subjected to lawyers. Get enough families in there who are thankful for a roof over their heads and those squatters will be out of there quickly.
 
2020-10-22 12:57:34 PM  
It's a rental.  That's what the deposit is for.  Maybe get a larger deposit next time.

Animatronik: What do you think "no eviction moratorium" means?


It means a moratorium on evictions.
These people are actually involved in a rental dispute about the accommodations and facilities provided, and both seem to be quite wealthy and not particularly sympathetic characters.
This really has nothing to do with the situation that millions of working class landlords are facing.

Don't interrupt, people are vicariously sticking it to THE MAN.

If it's part of a coordinated rent strike, it makes sense.  Collective action and all.

If not, it's an excuse.
 
2020-10-22 1:22:22 PM  
Just checked the article - headline lies.
The tenants complaint and refusal to pay has nothing to do with moratorium. That's what the rent-seeker is claiming - with apparent inaccuracy.
The tenants appear to be dishonest and manipulative, as well.
Neither side seems trustworthy.

Not every landlord is some big money scumbag whining about losing a few bucks.

NPR had a bit about a woman who was relocated for work and rented her condo while she was out of town. The renters refuse to pay or move out, so she can't afford to pay her own rent and has to couch surf until she can scrape up enough money to evict them.

And my own mother, who worked her entire life cutting hair for $7/hour took her life savings to buy a small rental home to generate a little extra income.  She worked her ass off renovating the place herself despite being in her 70s and her first renters refused to pay and squatted for almost a year.   (This was before COVID.)   When she finally got them evicted they stole the washer, dryer, stove, and refrigerator that came with the place, and smashed holes in the walls and floors, causing almost $20K in damage.

The lawyer-renters in this story sound exactly like her scumbag renters, just on a grander scale.
