Tenants in buildings owned by The Pinnacle Group filing claims as part of settlement following class action suit

Tenants in buildings owned by The Pinnacle Group can now get free legal services thanks to a settlement brought about by a class action lawsuit



The free legal services are one of several requirements under a settlement with The Pinnacle Group, which was sued by 30,000 tenants back in 2007. Legal Services of NYC says Pinnacle was a landlord with over 500 properties throughout the city that it bought out with the goal of evicting rent-regulated tenants.



Under the settlement, residents who lived in Pinnacle-owned buildings between July 11, 2004 and April 27, 2010 can file a claim for forced evictions, unfair rent increases, harassment, lack of repairs and other mistreatment.



Legal services is urging those who believe they may have a claim to come forward fast. The deadline to file is Dec. 31.
