As previously reported here on FAA News, 60 tenants of Prime Apartment tenants, represented by Attorney Ian Goldman Esq., have served their landlord and his property manager with a Superior Court lawsuit alleging a long list of illegal rent increases and associated harassment, intimidation and retaliation.

Following the filing of this lawsuit, as previously reported here on FAA News, Cheskel Brach, the landlord of Prime Apartments, served the tenants with a Hasra'ah (a warning) from the Bais Din of the Central Rabbinical Congress of the U.S.A. and Canada (the CRC).

Additionally, as previously reported here on FAA News, Bais Din Zedek which is under the auspicies of Rav Yisroel Knopfler, has also authored a Hasra'ah against the tenants.

As more recently reported here on FAA News, a response was posted on the bulletin board of Prime Apartments. The letter is not signed by any specific tenants.

The tenants, whose lawsuit alleges retaliation, have also retaliated against the landlord by reporting plumbing work to the Township. The Township responded to the 5th floor unit and issued a Stop Work Order against the construction.

It is unclear at this time if the Rav who permitted the tenants to file their lawsuit in civil court also permitted them to report this construction to the Township.

Correct. This retaliation was done prior to the filing of the lawsuit. The tenants were retaliating against the raising of the rent.

They closed down the rent control which prevented such fights. They did it to allow certain landlords to do whatever they want. Yidden are at the mercy of greedy people. They are refused returns of their deposits. They get their rents raised or are chased out. They are forced to pay for utilities they don't even use.

Where’s the evidence showing who advised on the illegal construction work?
