In this commercial holdover proceeding, landlord alleges that tenant-appellants five-year lease for a specified portion of the premises at 48 Eagle Street, Brooklyn, N.Y. expired on July 31, 2000 and that the building is not a multiple dwelling and not subject to rent regulation. Appellant defends on the grounds, inter alia, that he timely exercised a renewal option in his lease; that a holdover proceeding cannot be maintained because the building is an unregistered de facto multiple dwelling; and that the building contains more than six residential units and is thus subject to the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974. Appellant also counterclaimed for damages for rent overcharge and attorneys fees. After a lengthy trial, the Civil Court found that the testimony of appellants witnesses was not credible and that appellants extensive proof did not adequately rebut landlords proof of lack of knowledge and acquiescence; that appellant was not protected by rent stabilization because he had profiteered; and that, even if appellant had timely exercised the renewal option, a finding the court declined to make, he could not validly do so because he was not in compliance with the lease requirement to use the premises solely for commercial purposes.
