NY City Landlord Facing his Own Eviction as Tenants Refuse to Pay


The New York Post is reporting that a New York City landlord is himself facing eviction after some “deadbeat” tenants are refusing to pay rent.  The Post says David Howson, himself elderly and not in good health, has long used rental income from his 10-unit building to help pay for his own co-op apartment where he’s lived for decades.  Indeed…

“The bulk of the lost income — more than $39,000 — comes from a single tenant who inherited rights to the apartment after her husband left for a nursing home, and hasn’t paid a dime of rent since December 2016, according to the landlord, who showed rent rolls to The Post.”
