Attorney General James and Governor Cuomo Announce Lawsuit Against Queens Landlord for Violating Rent Stabilization Laws And Tenant Harassment

Earlier this month Attorney General Letitia James and Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced a lawsuit against Zara Realty Holding Corp., its principals, and affiliated entities for repeatedly violating rent stabilization laws and harassing tenants at their Queens apartment buildings. The defendants, who own and manage at least 2,500 rent-stabilized apartments in 38 buildings in and around Jamaica, Queens, have taken advantage of their tenants, who are largely immigrant middle- and low-income families, by charging them illegal fees and rents, and requiring that they sign illegal leases.

The complaint, filed in New York State Supreme Court, alleges that Zara Realty has spent years evading and circumventing rent stabilization laws in order to scam tenants out of thousands upon thousands of dollars. Zara Realty often illegally demands and charges new tenants illegal key money, room reservation fees, advanced rent, and excessive security deposits. Tenants who continue to reside in Zara Realty buildings are often illegally charged late fees and fees for services to which they are entitled to for free such as regular apartment maintenance.

For years, Catholic Migration Services has represented Queens tenants who have fallen victim to the harassment and unscrupulous tactics of Zara Realty. Providing legal, advocacy and organizing resources, Catholic Migration Services continues to combat predatory landlords and represents low-income New Yorkers living in Queens free of charge.

¿Una multa vial o un pleito con el casero podrían afectar el proceso de naturalización ante USCIS?

Por si te lo perdiste:

Cuando un Residente Legal Permanente comienza el proceso para solicitar la naturalización, es importante tener el “buen carácter moral” (Good Moral Character/GMC por sus siglas en inglés). Es uno de los requisitos básicos para que un inmigrante con su Green Card (Tarjeta Verde en inglés) puede aplicar por la ciudadanía. En un entrevista con El Diario, Servicios Catolicos de Migracion y Abogados de Nueva York para el Interés Público (New York Lawyers for the Public Interest/NYLPI, en inglés) responden a estas preguntas y otras.
