Elaine Shay's answer Generally, the most appropriate forum to demand repairs in a landlord/tenant situation is in Housing Court through an HP Proceeding. It would be unusual, costly and most probably substantially slower to try to commence a case in Supreme Court to compel repairs.

Kristen Epifania's answer If this is her first offense, depending on the amount of items, she will likely receive an ACD with the condition that she completes a short one day shoplifting program. The ACD means that the case will be adjourned for six months and then dismissed and sealed, as long as there are no new arrests. She can hire an attorney beforehand, or the court will assign an attorney to her case on that date if she doesn’t appear with one.
Michael David Siegel's answer Answer the summons. Your bank account can be frozen if there is a judgment. You might be able to unfreeze it with an exemption. Do not send a letter. Answer the case. Now that the case is in court, and payment arrangement should be in writing and a court order.
Elaine Shay's answer In order to evict a tenant in New York City, a case must be commenced in Housing Court. Before commencing the case, certain predicate notices must be served. If you are a tenant without a written lease in a non-regulated apartment, you should expect to receive a 30 Day Notice before any court papers. Once a judgment of eviction is obtained in Housing Court, the court has the ability to stay the eviction for a maximum of six additional months.
