Default Affidavits in Summary Nonpayment Proceedings

, New York Law Journal


Sole practitioner Nicholas E. Brusco writes: It is self-evident that the summary nonpayment statute is designed for the speedy recovery of rental real property. However, any landlord-tenant practitioner can attest that turn-around time for issuance of a default warrant is measured in weeks rather than days of service of the nonpayment petition.

    God bless you, Mr. Brusco, for having the chutzpah to write this article! Not only does the landlord‘s bar have its back up against the wall with the decidedly pro-tenant statutes and case law, but many times we have to fight some Housing Judges who seem to go out of their way to screw the landlord as much and as often as possible to the benefit of the tenants and their plethora of advocacy groups. Apparently the consensus is that landlords are charities and tenants constitute the poor, unwashed masses who can‘t fend for themselves without the assistance of beneficent government. In any event, thank you for your article and please keep ‘em coming!
