I have a tenant with a year remaining on their lease , behind in rent and having done damage to the apartment. According to the HPD Section 8 rules I have had to live be - they should not be able to get a move voucher until I give them a letter releasing them from the lease, the rent is paid up and some thing worked out on damages however the tenant has managed to get and 'emergency move voucher' and all my protections as a landlord are out the window. Frankly I'll be glad to see them move but the turn around time and not being able to line up a new tenant as quickly as I may have to will leave me in a very tight bind with my mortgage. Calls to HPD tell me I have no recourse on this - does anyone know anything I can do to get HPD to enforce their own stated move criteria?

Awww .... how sad. Behind on the mortgage and all.

Hey ! I just had an idea.

Why not use some of that significant tax credit cash that goes along with the HPD program to get caught up on the mortgage ?

Perhaps their criteria does not include an "emergency move voucher?" These are for domestic violence and given top priority. As for your rent, if Section 8 wasn't paying the bulk of it, who was? Are you behind in the amount the tenant was supposed to pay? If so, let her move, then sue her for what she owes.
