In this seminar, Joyce Zimberg, Esq., a Court Attorney, discusses the nuisance holdover proceeding. A landlord may bring a nuisance holdover if a tenant, a member of the tenant’s family, or a guest of the tenant engages in a continuous course of conduct which threatens the health, safety, or comfort of neighboring tenants or other building occupants. The seminar covers elements of and defenses to a nuisance holdover proceeding, and how to prepare for court.
