Well I Thought, No I Was Expecting The Leader Of This Mayoral Circus Ring To Make Herself Shine From Another’s Bad Publicity. Only When Bad Press Befall’s An Opponent Does She, Christine Quinn Shine.

Like This:

In a public spanking, retired public-school teacher Peg Brunda refused to shake Anthony Weiner’s hand after telling him his pervy behavior made him unfit to be mayor.

“Had I conducted myself in the manner in which you conducted yourself, my job would have been gone,” the 30-year teaching veteran told Weiner during a visit to Superstorm Sandy-damaged homes on Staten Island.

“In the privacy of your home?” asked Weiner defensively.

“In the privacy of my home . . . I don’t quite understand how you would feel you would have the moral authority as the head administrator in this city to oversee employees when your standard of conduct is so much lower than the standard of conduct that’s expected of us.”

Having Been For Year’s In The City Council As A Member Then As It’s Ringleader,Who Best To Detail Another’s Dysfunction While Ignoring One’s Own Failing’s Christine Quinn Is The Epitomy Of Hypocrisy To Call Anthony Weiner Unfit To Lead NYC As It’s Mayor.While It Is True That Disgraced Former Congressman Anthony Weiner Is UNFIT To Be The leader Of NYC, We Must Never Ever Forget That The So Called Speaker A Democrat Saw Fit To Overturn Through Sheer Gall, Two Voter Referendum’s Voted On On Two Seperate Occassion’s To Limit A Mayor’s And City Council Term’s To Two, Four Year Term’s.

Like This:

“Today our government chose to empower itself rather than the people it serves,” said Thompson in 2008, who’s again running for mayor.

In an email, Thompson’s spokesman Brendan Brosh wrote, “The term limits vote was a dark moment for the people of New York where the will of voters that was expressed on two separate occasions at the ballot box was overturned by the Mayor and the Speaker of the City Council. Voters have long memories and will remember those elected officials that knowingly disregarded the will of New Yorkers in 2008.”

She Oversaw The implementation Of CityTime, The 911 Emergency System, The Theft Of Water Front Properties By The Wealthy And Well Connected Developer’s, The Explosion Of The Homeless Population To Level’s Bot Seen Since The Great Depression, The Closure And Fire Sale Of Our Precious Hospital’s, The NYPD Ticket Scandal, The Wholesale Closure’s Of NYC School’s, The Invasion Of Private Charter School’s Into Our Public School Building’s, And The Loss Of Thousand’s Of Rent Regulated Apartment’s.

The List Of Failures Is Quite Endless For This Circus Leader, More Of A BIG CLOWN If You Ask The Populace.

Of Course Next To Her Greatest Democratic Failure Of Overturning Term Limit’s There Is Her Participation In The Infamous Slushfund That Saw A Few Official’s From The City Council On Their Way To Prison, All Under Watch.

Like This:

After a spirited, emotional and at times raucous debate, the New York City Council voted, 29 to 22, on Thursday afternoon to extend term limits, allowing Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to seek re-election next year and undoing the result of two voter referendums that had imposed a limit of two four-year terms.

The vote was a major victory for Mayor Bloomberg — a billionaire and lifelong Democrat who was elected mayor as a Republican in 2001, won re-election in 2005, became an independent last year, and decided just weeks ago that he wished to seek a third term for himself in 2009 — and for the Council’s speaker, Christine C. Quinn. But the intense acrimony surrounding the decision left a sharply divided Council and could ultimately damage the mayor’s popularity. Read the rest of this entry »

I Can Not Say That Should I Have Been Born In Germany, As A Jew Or A German, Witnessing The Advancement Of Rules And Edict’s  Made Only For The Purpose Of Propaganda Or Control Of A People, That I Would Not Stay Silent Or Object And Say Nothing.

No, I Would Love To Think That I Would State As A German My Opposition, And Had I Been A Jew Would Have Had The Telemetry To Flee.

That Slushfund Quinn Is Concerned For The Youth Of This City, That She Proposes Saving Them From Themselves By Changing Around Old Rules And Calling Them Original Is Quite Hilarious….What I Found Hilarious Was That She Loves To Label Her Greed As Concern….She Was So Concerned For The Low Wage Worker Of This City So Much Care And Concern For Them That She Stalled A Bill To Give Them Sick Days Pay For Over 1,105 Day’s….And In The Last Year Of Her ILLEGAL Third Term…..So Much Was Her Concern…

Not To Be Seen As The Weak Candidate By Those That Have No Opinion Of Her Past 8 Year’s As Leader Of A Corrupt, Often Times Dysfunctional City Council, Slushfund Tinged City Council Speaker  Christine Quinn wants to raise the minimum age to buy tobacco from 18 to 21.  Never Mind That As Soon As Any Person Turn’s 18 Year’s Of Age They MUST By Federal Law Register With Selective Service’s For Whatever Purpose’s The U.S. Government May Need Them For In The Future.

Here Lies The All American U.S, Government's Empowered 18 Year Old's That Under  Christine Quinn's Misguided Policies Could Not Even Buy A Pack Of Cigarette's, Like Those Many African American's That Went To War Yet Came Home To Discrimination.

Here Lies The All American U.S, Government’s Empowered 18 Year Old’s That Under Christine Quinn’s Misguided Policies Could Not Even Buy A Pack Of Cigarette’s, Like Those Many African American’s That Went To War Yet Came Home To Discrimination.

That The Federal Government May Use A Person To Fight And Perhaps’ Give Their Life Over For Military Purposes Say’s That In The Eyes Of The U.S. These Individual’s Are Old Enough To Partake In Event’s That Require A Committment That May Be Detrimental To Their Own Health Speak’s To The Federal Government’s Committment In Empowering These Individual’s With Responsibilities.

Yeah Volunteer But Dont Think Of Excerting Your God Given Right's In American NYC.

Yeah Volunteer But Dont Think Of Excercising Your God Given Right’s In America, NYC.

Again As A Matter Of Point How Can You Tax Without Representation And Ignore The Fact, That Any Individual That Work’s, Pay’s Federal, State And City Taxes Can Be Denied The Right To Purchase Tobacco Product’s If Not Under The Age Of 21?

Yet Here  Once Again We Have These Selfish People Proposing And Presuming That Someone Under The Age Of 21 Cannot Make Life Changing Choices And That, The Government Knows Whats Best For Them, While At The Same Time Saying To These Very Same Individual’s That They Are Old Enough To Give Their Life For The City, State And Federal Government.

At What Point Do The Resident’s  Of NYC And NY State Say Enough Is Enough, And Enough Of This Baby Sitting Corrupt Infused Government.

That Mrs. Quinn Loves A Vagina Is Her Preference, I Myself have Had A Few Vagina’s In My Hayday……Mean’s Nothing, But To Use Her Status As An Out And Open Homosexual To Gain Voter’s That Are In The Life Is Appalling, And That Making Proposal’s Without General Consent Using Only The Approval Of Other Agencies Is Incredulous To Say The Least.

I Marveled At The Countless Homosexual’s That Volunteer For Her Campaign, Only As A Way To Be Seen, We Gay’s Do That Often, Often Occasionally Showing Off Our Vogueness, Our Face’, In Fact Only Showing Our Asses…To The Merriment Of The Many Like Myself When I Attended The Mayoral Forum At Baruch College.

Of Course The News Came Out That The Speaker Has A Whole Secret Department That Cost The Tax Payer Over A Million Dollar’s Within City Hall That Churn’s Out Political Propaganda To Benefit  Her Public Persona Under The Cover Of Constituent Services.

Tell The Homeless Youth That Her “Fangness” Will Deny Them Their Cigarette’s And We Will See These People, 18 Year Old’s Mind You, Turn Like If They Were On A Runway At Fashion Week. Many Only Volunteering For Her Because They Lack What She Passes Off As One Grande Vagina…They Have VAGINA Envy. Oh Well…….

While She Is Called A Democrat, That Is Obvious In Name Only As Far As Her Record Is Concerned And  That She Would Deny American’s Of Legal Military Age The Right To Purchase Product’s That They Choose, Regardless Of Studies That May Or May Not Be Accurate Is Anathema To The Democratic Process As Smacks Of Bloomberic Nannyism, A Condition Brought On By One Being Inferior In Height Or Status.

That 12, 13, 14 And 15 Year Old’s Are Being Infected By All Sort’s Of Infectious Sexual Diseases Leading To Death While Her Concern In This Election Year Is To Follow Suit With Her Mentor On Their Personal War On Tobacco And This Dictator Bloomberg And His Policies That Circumvent The Whole City Council And The Rules Speak’s To Her Ignorance Of Our Knowledge Of The System.

She Has Used The Tobacco Issue Only To Make Her Impression On The Voter, While Her Homeless Policy Has Lead To Almost 50,000 Families Living In Squalor, On The Street’s, In Unsecure Condition’s And Questioning Their Very Existence.

That Those According To The Bloomberg Administration Will Graduate This Year 2013 And Become ELIGIBLE To Vote But Not Be Able To Purchase Tobacco Product’s Is Anathema, Contrary To Any Known Or Practiced Political Stratgedy, No Thought By Her Homosexual Operative’s On What Count’s Or Is really Important To Our Emerging Youth…..The Right To Purchase, Be Respected As A Tax Payer, The Right To FREE Choice Has Absolutely Eluded Their Multi Colored Blind Ambition’s.

Yet This Is More Important That Living Secure In A Bed, Cooking A Meal At HOME, Showering In A Private Residence That WE All Call HOME.

Yeah I Have Witnessed The New Democratic Party Here In Brooklyn, Those So Called Progressive’s That Used Word’s Like Fuck Bill Thompson For Backing This Or That Candidate, And Fuck This And That….Many Of These So Called Progressive’s ARE Still In The Closet…..Never Actually Making The Move Forward Independent Of  A Party….Useless Fodder, That At The End Of The Day Will Get Paid But Never Actually Ever Progress, Like That One Term District Leader…WHAT A Freeken Joke…Then Kissing The New Brooklyn Democratic leader’s ASS…Yeah I Saw The Photo Op…What A Shtetl Gay Tramp. That Restlor…

Did You Think That I Would Stay Shut, While The New Democratic Party, The Gofer’s And Those That Would Ignore Corrupt Legislation And Legislator’s Who Submit Proposal’s That Interfere With Due Process, And That Our Basic Right’s As Tax Payer’s Are Offered On What I Consider “The Slave Market Back In Sharecropper Day’s”….Buy Us…Sell Us At Whim And Will…….I Have My Ball’s And My Will……F**k YOU!

Latest Update:

August 30,2012

I”m Hearing On 1010WINS News That More Female Staff Have Come Out To Denounce The Disgraced Chairman Of The Kings County Democratic Party…It Really Does Not Look Good For Vito Or For Sheldon Silver….

Latest Update:

August 29,2012

Vito Lopez

Brooklyn‘s longtime Democratic powerhouse, is resigningfrom his powerful leadership post but keeping his Assembly seat, he announced this afternoon.

Lopez, who was censured by the Assembly for allegedly sexually harassing staffers, denied the allegations in a statement but said the pressure has become too great for him to continue serving as Brooklyn Democratic Chairman.

“I will not be seeking the position of party chair,” he said. “The onslaught of character attacks has put enormous emotional pressures on my family and close friends. I cannot sit by and allow that to continue.”

The Assembly paid $103,000 in hush money to settle some of the claims against Lopez but sources say there were other complaints as well.

The Devil Is Among Us Dressed As Sheep, Be Wary!

The Following Message Was Sent To Me Via Facebook Message:

Peter Kaplan(Facebook)

Hello Mr. Ramos, my name is Peter Kaplan and I am a political reporter from BuzzFeed.com, looking to interview Charles Barron supporters for a piece I am working on, I noticed that you are a participant on his Facebook page. If you are available for an interview today either via telephone or e-mail, I’m very interested in speaking!

Thank you,

Peter Kaplan

 

My Response Via FB Message:

Luis A Ramos

While I Support Barron 100% I Have No Daily Working Knowledge With Him. I Have Followed His Political Work Closely. I Did Attend The Campaign Kick Off For Jesus Gonzalez In Bushwick And Have A Quick Conversation With Him. I Have Voted For Him For Governor Of NY. I Really Listen And Research Politician’s Histories And Do Not Easily Accept Their Campaign Propoganda. I Think He Is The Firebrand Needed In Congress To Shake Things Up Over In D.C.I Do Not Believe That He Is Anti-Semetic But Like Myself Freely Rejects The AIPAC Ideal’s And Use Of The USA To Further A Zionist Agenda With Capital In Lives And Funds…..In Any Case I Am Willing To Have A Chat, But Don’t See How Much I Can Contribute To Your Piece.

I Do Not Give Out My Number Out, But In This Case I Will.

It Is 1-347——— And Please Feel Free To Call At Your Most Convenient Time.

Respectfully, Luis A. Ramos

 

I Received The Call And Mr. Kaplan Was Focused On What Mr. Barron Stated Many Years Ago, I Of Course Informed Mr. Kaplan That He Should Question Mr. Dov Hikind On His Visit To Israel To Buy Property That Belonged To The Palestinian People, And I Questioned Him On How Was It Possible For Mr. Hikind To Find Fault Of Mr. Barron When Mr. Barron Never Gave Material Aide To A Terrorist Organization Like Mr. Hikind Has Done, Whe He (Hikind) was a follower of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane’s Jewish Defense League, which has been identified as “a right wing terrorist group” by the FBI,[9] knew Rabbi Kahane very well, and is active in right-wing Jewish causes. And That In the summer of 2005, Hikind visited the settlements of Gush Katif to express his concern for the residents who were slated to be expelled from their homes. In the summer of 2006, along with a group of fellow legislators and community leaders, Hikind visited northern Israeli communities during the time of the Hezbollah rocket attacks on Israel. He and his group spent the time there distributing funds and material aid.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dov_Hikind

 

 

Mr. Kaplan Was Present During The Latino Endorsement Of Charles Barron For Congress Covered By NY1, On The Step’s Of City Hall Last Week, Of Course As My Friend And I Approached He Immediately Pulled Her To The Side To Interview Her….She Left Perturbed After This And Felt Confused And Dumb Founded At The Thought That Mr. Barron Was An Anti Semite…I Explained To Her His Aim…We Both Laughed, But I Have Passed This On To Mr. Barron To Be On The Look Out For This Propaganda Infiltrators Of The People’s Work.

The Following Are Comments Made To This Story Written By: Peter Walker Kaplan

Adam Holland · · Bard College ·

Barron has devoted a significant portion of his activism to support for Mugabe, Qaddafi and Hamas. Now that he’s running for Congress, the former firebrand seems to be pulling his punches on those issues. I also wonder what he could mean when he says that “we should establish a Palestinian state”. Does he believe that the U.S. should act unilaterally to do this? The question may give him too much credit. He seems to care less about the finer (or even broader) points of foreign policy than he does about making boilerplate allegedly anti-imperialist statements of support for various dictators and against the U.S. and its allies.

Markus Rose · Bard College ·

i am unfamiliar with him as a non-New Yorker, but he’ll be a one-termer if he makes it to congress and doesn’t quash his rhetoric. someone in the CBC or perhaps Sharpton will tutor him on what happened to Earl Hilliard and Cynthia McKinney.

My Response:

Well To You Both I Am Familiar With The Honorable Mr. Barron. He Hail’s From A Place Called Brooklyn, Once A Part Of A Racist State That Has Discriminated Against The African-American Community And The Latino Community For Decades…..He Has Never Advocated To Take Someone’s Land, House, Apartment, By Proxy, Unlike What The Zionist Movement Called AIPAC. He Knows, Like We All Do That AIPAC Is Behind The Lines Here In The US Supporting And Giving Material Aide To The Terrorist State Of Israel….Please Discontinue Acting High And Mighty Like You Do Not Know Or Were Not Aware Of The Atrocities Committed By Israel. By Doing So You Yourselves Have Committed The Very Same Thing That The German’s Committed In The 40’s..Where Did That lead To…..You Act Educated So Please Let’s Not Banter With The Past That Serves No Service To Brooklyn’s Future Or That Of The security Not Of Israel But Of America…..It Is A New World, Not Thank God Led By People Of Your Intellect…….That Leads Us Into Follies Of destruction, And Poverty!!!!!

Yeah, Luis. You qualify to be a Charles Barron supporter.

Backyard & Basement Use In A Press

When In Doubt

Search It Out!

 
I Recently Had A Discussion With The Property Manager Of My Building Regarding Use Of The Backyard.

 

She Has Stated That She Does Not Want Me, Not The Landlord But She, To Use The Backyard And That It Was Not Part Of My Lease Amenities.

 

She Stated That She Would Put That In Writing.

 

I Countered That The Landlord Has On Several Occassion’s Complimented Me On The Upkeep And The Vegetable Garden That I Have Sown In The Outer Area’s Not Covered By Concrete, As It Was Intended For.

 

I Stated That No Matter What She States I Will Continue To Freely Use This Enclosed Area, Since My Back Window And That Of My Neighbor’s Window Is The Only Access Apart From The Basement Exit Door On The Ground.

 

I Have Always Had Access To This Area Prior To Her Company Purchasing The Property, As Well As The Basement Area.

 

As Noted By The Enclosed Court Hearing On The Matter, The Tenants Had Property Confiscated By The New Landlord, Thereby Acknowledging That The Area’s In Question Were Previously Used By The Tenant’s.

 

Here Is The Garden Area As Well As The Enclosed DHCR Administrative Court Hearing Minutes.

         ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                         

         The above-named petitioner-owners filed a timely petition for
         administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on April 23, 1993
         concerning the housing accommodations known as 382 12th Street,  
         Brooklyn, New York, various apartments, wherein the Rent
         Administrator determined the tenants’ complaint of a reduction of
         certain building-wide services.

         The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and
         has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the
         issues raised by the petition.            

         Three rent stabilized tenants commenced this proceeding by filing
         a complaint asserting that the current owners discontinued the
         tenants’ access to the basement for storage and of the backyard,
         permitted by the prior owner.

         The owners denied the allegations set forth in the complaint, and
         asserted that they were never services provided by the former
         owner, who was aged and infirm, and not able to prevent unauthor-
         ized use.  The owners also stated that neither of the services were
         registered by the then owner in the initial 1984 services registra-
         tion, nor provided for in the tenants’ leases.

         In response to a request for additional information, the tenants
         reiterated that they had always had access to the basement for
         storage and to the backyard for recreational and other uses.  The
         tenants also stated that the owners had removed and discarded the
         tenants’ property from the backyard.  Copies of the tenants’
         responses were mailed to the owner.  There is no record of a
         response from the owner.

         HC230254RO                                

         Thereafter, an inspection of the subject premises was conducted by
         the DHCR inspector who confirmed that the tenants did not have
         access to the storage facilities and backyard at the time of the
         inspection.

         The Rent Administrator ordered restoration of these services, and
         further, ordered a reduction of stabilization rents.

         In the appeal the owners reiterates that access to the basement
         storage space and to the backyard were never required services, and
         that such services were not registered nor authorized, and not set
         forth in the tenants’ leases.

         After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion
         that the petition should be denied.

         Pursuant to Section 2523.4 of the Rent Stabilization Code, DHCR is
         required to order a rent reduction, upon application by a tenant,
         where it is found that an owner has failed to maintain required
         services.  

         The tenants asserted and the owners denied basement storage space
         and use of the backyard were services provided by the owners.  
         However, on appeal the owners confirmed that the tenants had been
         directed to remove their possessions from the basement and to cease
         use of the backyard .  The owners also stated on appeal that from
         1986 through 1988 the building was managed by a professional
         managing agent and thereafter by the executrix of the incapacitated
         prior owner until transfer of title.  If the services were not
         authorized initially, failure to take appropriate action when the
         facts became apparent to them constituted a waiver.  Accordingly,
         the owners, as successors in interest, remain obligated to continue
         these services.

         The owners are in error in raising the initial 1984 building regis-
         tration to establish that the basement storage space and use of the
         backyard were not contemplated as services.  Tenants can assert
         decreases of required or essential services at any time.  Whether
         or not the services were listed in the tenants’ leases is also not
         relevant.  Required or essential services are not confined to
         services set forth in the lease.  It is the actual services
         provided on the base date or thereafter, not lease provisions or
         registered services, that control.

         HC230254RO                                

         The one tenant’s request to withdraw the complaint cannot be con-
         sidered since the order was issued properly, and must therefore be
         followed.

         The automatic stay of retroactive abatements that resulted by the
         filing of the petition is vacated upon issuance of this Order and
         Opinion.

         The owners may file a rent restoration application if the facts so
         warrant.

         THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Eviction Regulations for
         New York City, the City Rent Control Law, and the Rent Stabiliza-
         tion Law and Code, it is

         ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied, and
         that the Rent Administrator’s order be, and the same hereby, is
         affirmed.

         ISSUED:

                                                                         
                                               JOSEPH A. D’AGOSTA

This Story Is The BOMB, To Why The City Council Is At This Moment Attacking The VILLAGE VOICE’S AD,S On The Back Pages…Like When Was The Last Time You Heard A Pre Pubescent Teenager Complain About Them…..Ad’S…We learned last night that a federal judge has granted class certification to a lawsuit which claims the NYPD‘s quota policy is unconstitutional and results in summonses and stop and  Frisk‘s being done without probable cause. The lawsuit, which could turn into a fairly big problem for Mayor Bloomberg, relies heavily on tape recordings of police supervisors ordering officers to hit specific monthly summons numbers–all of which was first reported in the Village Voice‘s award winning “NYPD Tapes” series. http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2012/04/nypd_tapes_fede.php

Housing Late Fee’s In A Press

UPDATE 1-19-2012:

Well I Found A Registered Mail Pick-Up Slip In  My Mailbox Today. I Will See Tomorrow Morning If It Is The Registered Correspondence That I Requested From The Property Manager, That I Requested From Her, Via E-Mail. Or Some Nefarious Eviction Notice, Of Which I Am Quite Sure Will Be Based Not On Anything Owed, But On Retaliation For Claiming My Right’s Under The NYC Rent Guidelines Rules Or The NY State DHCR Rules And Regulations. We’ll See.

Past Post:

Well Hello My Friends, I Have Searched And Searched This Issue About Late Fee’s And If Some Readers Are Like Me, On A Fixed Income Then I Know From Experience That This Issue Can Keep You Up At Night Worrying About When The Landlord Will Have A Process Server Hand You A Housing Court Order To Show Cause.

Believe Me I Looked And Couldn’t Find One Defense To This….That Is Until After The Crook Working As Property Manager Casually Pulled Out A Sheet Of Lined Notebook Paper, The Kind We Used For The First Grade, And Began, While Writing Out My Current Rent Payment Receipt, That I Had Accrued Late Fee’s……

I Was Flabbergasted And I Thought For A Moment What The……But Alas I Decided To Do The Next Best Thing , I Informed Her That She Will Receive As Rent Payment That Which Is Listed In My Lease And Nothing More…Not One Thin Dime And I Further Suggested, In A  Politely But Hurried Manner  To Finish Writing The Receipt And To Get The Hell Out Of My Apartment.

Here Is What I Later Found While Delving Into The Wonderful World Of The Internet:

Late fees are illegal

    Your lease says you have to pay late fees if your money is paid after the 5th of the month. You signed the lease, promising to pay them. Everybody charges late fees. Even the California Department of Consumer Affairs says you have to pay late fees. You’ve already paid late fees. Your landlord threatens to evict you if you don’t pay the late fees he charges. Judges act like late fees are the landlord’s God-given right. Property management companies, the California Association of Realtors, and apartment association “official” forms all include late fees in the printed portion. You don’t even question it. Who would?

    We went though the same scam with security deposits starting 30 years ago. Security Deposits were supposed to be returned, but landlords kept them. The Legislature said all deposits had to be refundable, so landlords started calling them nonrefundable “cleaning fees,”  to which the Legislature responded that all money, including cleaning fees, were “deposits,” under the law. The courts backed the landlords, and the official forms endorsed the thefts, and the laws have continued to be stronger and more restrictive, so that landlords now have to pay up to 3 times the amount of a wrongfully withheld deposit, and the landlord has several procedures to follow, paperwork to present, and the burden to prove everything. 

    The law regarding residential late fees is almost 30 years old. In 1978, Civil Code 1671 was amended to outlaw virtually all late fees in residential rental agreements. The problem is that it didn’t use the word “late fees,” but instead used the technical legal generic term “liquidated damages,” which would functionally include a late fee by its meaning. Here’s the actual statute:

 §1671. Validity of Liquidated Damages Provisions
(a) This section does not apply in any case where another statute expressly applicable to the contract prescribes the rules or standard for determining the validity of a provision in the contract liquidating the damages for the breach of the contract.
(b) Except as provided in subdivision (c), a provision in a contract liquidating the damages for the breach of the contract is valid unless the party seeking to invalidate the provision establishes that the provision was unreasonable under the circumstances existing at the time the contract was made.
(c) The validity of a liquidated damages provision shall be determined under subdivision (d) and not under subdivision (b) where the liquidated damages are sought to be recovered from either:
(1) A party to a contract for the retail purchase, or rental, by such party of personal property or services, primarily for the party’s personal, family, or household purposes; or
(2) A party to a lease of real property for use as a dwelling by the party or those dependent upon the party for support.
(d) In the cases described in subdivision (c), a provision in a contract liquidating damages for the breach of the contract is void except that the parties to such a contract may agree therein upon an amount which shall be presumed to be the amount of damage sustained by a breach thereof, when, from the nature of the case, it would be impracticable or extremely difficult to fix the actual damage.

    If you looked up “late fees,” this statute didn’t show up, until recently, when the case of Orozco v. Casimiro [(2004) 121 Cal.App.4th Supp. 7] was decided. There, for the first time, an appellate court identified late fees as “liquidated damages” within the meaning of Civil Code 1671, and declared them to be illegal and void, absent extraordinary circumstances.

To All My Friends And Loved Ones, Wishing You All A Merry Christmas.

Well The Situation Here Has Now Morphed From A Defective Boiler With Daily Issues To

A  Newly Installed Boiler That Is Again Controlled By A Thermostat In Another

Apartment.

I Have Spent The Past (11) Eleven Days Calling The Super For The Thermostat To Be

Switched On, Whenever I Want  To Take A Shower.

That The Thermostat And Heat In My Apartment To Be Turned On Needs For Me To

Place  A Call To The Super Is Beyond Hysterical But Should Be Illegal

This Is Going To Be A Litigious New Year.

 

Leaks In A Press!

Update 1-10-12:
 
For Two Years I Have Had This Radiator Blocked By Water In The Pipes Instaed Of Steam. Finally, Or So I Thought, The Landlord Installed A New One After Installing A New Boiler. That Very Same Night The Boiler Began To Shoot Out Steam That Covered The Walls And Everything Else That Was Exposed. After 2 Days The Landlord returned To Repair The Flaw, Leaving Without Checking If It Worked. It Did Not And It Began To Spew Even More Steam. After 5 Days He Returned And Replaced The Radiator With Another Used One. Well As Seen Here In This Video, I Now Have My Own Personal Water Spout. See Here:

Update 1-3-12:
 
Well After  It Took The Landlord Fully Six (6) Days To Return To NYC From Philadelphia To Make The Needed Repair’s. Of Course I Had To Live Those (6) Six Days Without Sufficient Heat In My Apartment Until Then.

Re:    Radiator Leak
Date: December 19, 2011
 
Well it Is Now Seven (7) Days Since The New Boiler Was Installed.
On The 13th I Informed The Landlord That The Radiator Was leaking Liquids. I Believed That He
 
Replaced The Whole Valve With A Different One.  He Left Leaving The Radiator To Leak Promising To
 
Return Thursday The 14th. He Indeed Returned At 6:30 P.M. After I Called Mei The Building Owner. He
 
Did Something And Left Without Checking To See If It Was Fixed And Not Leaking.
About An Hour Later The Heat Came Up And The Steam And Liquid Spewing From It Was Worse.(See Photo’s Here:
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
I E-Mailed You To Inform You Of The Events And What Was Done Following The Attempted Repair,
 
That Did Not Fix The Issue.
I Bought Black Sealer And Had A Plumber Check It And He Said That When It Had Two (2) Grooved
 
Channels Carved Across The  Inner Threads Making It Defective,  That Were Done Before In The Past
 
And That It Looked Like The Old Landlords Repairmen Had Attempted To Cap Them With Plastic
 
Sealant That Were Removed When The New Landlord Last Attempted To Stifle The Water Leak And
 
Steam, And Did Not Fully Inspect The Cause of The Original Leaks.
 
Unfortunately No Matter How Much Sealant One Uses Those Gouged Out Channel’s Cannot Be Filled
 
Unless One Uses Epoxy Resin To Fill Them. I Did Not Have The Money ToBuy This Material And So I’ve
 
Had To Keep The Valve On It’s Lowest Opening To Have Some Heat Without Having My Apartment
 
Filled With Steam. 
Well As I Say It Is Now Monday Morning, December 19th, 2011, And I Hope That This Repair Can Be
 
Made As Soon As Possible.
On Another Note I Will Mention That We Have Had No Heat After The Hours Of 10 P.M. And 6 A.M. But
 
I Did Not Call HPD As They Do Not Work Those Hours And It Is The Weekend, And They Are Worthless
 
Crooks Who Take Bribes!
 
It Does Not Matter. What Does Not Come Out In The Wash Comes Out In The Rinse.

Re:    Renewal Changes And Fees

Re:    Radiator Leak
 
I Left A Message On Your Phone. It Stated That I Have Submitted The New Lease To HRA. They Will
 
Send You Their Portion Together With The Increase And The Increase To The Security Deposit.
 
After I Last Spoke With You Concerning The Steam Leaking From The Kitchen Radiator On December
 
13, 2011, The Father In Law Stopped By The Following Day @ 6:30 P.M., After I Called The Landlord
 
Mei.  He Worked On It And Added White Sealing Tape And White Compound, And Left Without Testing
 
It.  Unfortunately It Began To Leak Water And Gush More Steam.
 
It Still Needs To Be Worked On And I Can’t Turn It On With All The Steam.
I Am A Bit Concerned For My Electronic Appliances As Well As My Toaster And Coffee Maker, I Do Not
 
Want To Turn Them On While This Steam Is Present..
 
Please Have Him Stop By To Repair It As Soon As He Has A Chance.

You Did Not Include A Rider With The One Page lease Renewal. Please Do So At As Soon As Possible.
 
As To The Courtesy Given To The Tenants For Your lack Of Foresight And Negligence, Of Electrical Space Heaters, I Will Be Remitting As Stated Beforehand My Gas And My Electricity Bill’s When Rent Is Due, Which Brings Up The Overcharging Of Rent In My Renewal lease, Which I Have Reffered To The  NYSDHCR For Remedy. And I Remind You That You Were Not Allowed To Change The Terms Of My Prior Lease In That It Does Not Contain An Air Conditioning Fee. Please Adjust The Renewal lease As Stated.

As To Certified Mailings I Have Never Recieved Any, And Would Like Copies Of Any Certified Reciepts Of This Contention, If Indeed Any Exist.
 
I Have A Record Of Calls Recieved During The Thanksgiving Week And Maybe One Is From You.
 
Please Forward To Me Records Of Damages Committed By Any Of My Guests. You Have None Because This Issue Is A Farce.
 
My Apartment Is Opened To My Friends And I Do Not Have A Business Flowing From It.
 
As For The Above Tenant, I Have Spoken Directly With Her And She Has Resolved The Issue, I Just Brought It Up Because, As You Say They Can Do Anything They Want, It’s Their Apartment, Which You Clearly Wrote In One Of Your Past E-Mail Responses.
 
I Have A Very Good And Healthy Relationship With All My Neighbor’s And The Community As Well As My Super, Who I Consider To Be A Friend. I Just Spoke To One Of My Above Neighbors And She Loved The Music I Was Playing A Few Days Ago.
 
Again I Do Not Expect You To Know Anything Because You Only Come Here During The First Of The Month.
 
I Did Answer The Door And Did Not Slam It In Your Face When You Appeared Unannounced, Even Though I Was In The Shower.
 
Again Please Bring With You These So Called Certified Copies Of Certified Mailings You Allegedly Sent To My Address, It Would Be Interesting To See Them.
 
If You Tried Really Hard And Went Out Of Your Way As You Contend, Where Are The E-Mails To Attest That You Tried Everything.
 
REFERENCE:
 
Rent stabilized tenants have a right to a one or two year renewal lease, which must be on the same terms and conditions as the prior lease. A landlord’s acceptance of a Section 8 subsidy is one such term which must be continued on a renewal lease. Landlords may refuse to renew a lease only in certain enumerated circumstances, such as when the tenant is not using the premises as a primary residence. For New York City rent stabilized tenants, the landlord must give timely written notice to the tenant of the right to renewal as required by law.

 

After the notice of renewal is given, the tenant has 60 days in which to accept. If the tenant does not accept the renewal offer within the prescribed time, the landlord may refuse to renew the lease and seek to evict the tenant through court proceedings. If the tenant accepts the renewal offer, the landlord has 30 days to return the fully executed lease to the tenant. Until returned to the tenant, the lease is not effective, and therefore the rent increase portion need not be paid.
 
 
 
 
P.S. Had I Recieved Such Rent Renewal Lease I Would Have Gladly Signed It. Again Please Forward The Date Of Certified Mailing Of The  Rent Renewal Lease Mailed.
 
 
Respectfully,

Subject: Lease and Non Payment
Mr Ramos,

 
Regarding your incorrect allegations (once again) that your were not presented with the lease renewal form, I sent you two copies via certified mail, in September 2011. You failed to respond.  I have called you and left messages, you did not answer nor return my calls.  You left me no choice but to come to your apartment.  I would love to announce my visits, but you do not answer my calls.  This last attempt I made to discuss your lease was as a courtesy to you.  I never imagined that affording you a chance to choose between a one or two year lease renewal would bother you or that you would consider it harassment.  As you have failed to respond to the certified mailing, to my phone calls and to my request to discuss your lease in person, you leave me no choice but to have your lease deemed by the landlord.  I will inform you of the landlord’s decision  in writing via certified mail. 
 
You claimed that I called you “Early in the Morning” on December 1st, when in fact I called you closer to 2:30 pm. When you called me, you stated that you were not available until the following week (The week of December 5th).  We agreed to meet on Monday, and that I would let you know on Sunday, today, what time I would stop by, which I complied with.  You chose to cancel.
 
I have explained the issue of the heat many many times and  I will gladly discuss any matters with your lawyer.  
 
Please be reminded that any rent payments submitted to me after the 5th of December become subject to late fees and put you in jeopardy of an eviction for non-payment. This month will be 13 months in a row that your rent is in arrears, if you do not pay in full of course.  If I remind you of these things, it is not, as you claim, Harassment.  I remind you because a) It is my job to do so and b) to help you avoid fees and eviction.  Owner is still waiting for your past due rent.  

From your email, I guess I should expect to hear from you as soon as you receive your SS checks.  If you wish to have the late fees reversed, you may submit proof that your checks were indeed re-issued.  

Sincerely,

Soraya H*****
