The stipulation will depend on the reason for the holdover (what kind of case it is).
- “No grounds” holdover — If you have no lease and you are not rent regulated, the landlord can bring an eviction case to get you to move out.
- Time to Move — The stip will say that you have to move out by a certain date. It might also say that you can come back to court to ask for more time.
- Rent — Do you have to pay rent or use and occupancy every month until you move out? Or do you have to pay back rent owed? The stip should say what rent must be paid and what will happen if it is not paid on time (if you default).
- Condition of apartment — Can you leave furniture in the apartment or does it have to be left empty and broom clean? Are there services that need to be provided before the move out date?
- Holdovers based on violation of the lease or the law — If the landlord is alleging undesirable conduct, the stipulation may contain a probationary period. The agreement might be that you will do something (like pay the rent on time) or stop doing something (letting your bathtub overflow) for a certain amount of time. The stip will say what will happen if you default (break the agreement).
