TENANT BACKGROUND CHECKS AND "BLACKLISTING"


And see http://www.nysba.org/tenantscreening/ for some very helpful tips on language in stipulations when tenant is brought into court like:

Upon payment:

1. Judgment will be vacated.

2. Action is withdrawn and discontinued with prejudice.

3. Landlord agrees to expunge proceeding from tenant screening services.

The NYSBA also suggests making sure stipulations are "so ordered".

However, getting the landlord counsel to agree to such terms may be an issue. And also, additional legal work mat be required by tenant. For example, tenant may have to bring a motion to vacate judgment after payment if landlord does not take such action.
