In the recent case of BROJA REALTY, LLC v. Amparo, 2011 NY Slip Op 51168 – NY: City Court, Civil Court 2011, Landlord attempted to collect late fees of $3,750 (which had accrued over the last 6 years).
The landlord was denied recovery of the late fees due to his delay in seeking the fees and his accounting methods. Most of the late fees being sought had accrued over four years ago. Additionally, the Landlord maintained two different accounting books, each reflecting different charges for late fees for the same period.
