The evictor becomes the evictee: Croman’s company overstayed lease

Steve Croman, the landlord accused of harassing rent-regulated tenants to force them out of his rental buildings, apparently overstayed his welcome at a Noho office building.

The landlord of 632 Broadway sought to evict Croman’s 9300 Realty Management after the company stayed in the building seven months after its lease expired in December 2016, DNAinfo reported. Croman and the landlord, Renaissance Properties, led by Kenneth Fishel, however, cut a deal that allowed the company to stay through Aug. 28. Croman’s firm also agreed to pay $35,976.04 for the days that it overstayed its lease.

“9300 Realty moved to a new office today,” a spokesperson for 9300 Realty Management said. “Our office lease had come to an end and we filed a mutually agreed upon extension to the lease with our landlord while we finished the fit out in our new space.”

Croman pleaded guilty in June to grand larceny and fraud charges, stemming from a scheme in which he directed employees to file documents that would allow him to secure bigger mortgages on his multifamily properties. He is slated to be sentenced next month, with a recommended one-year sentence at Riker’s Island. Another civil case brought by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office, which alleges that Croman harassed rent-stabilized tenants, remains ongoing. [DNAinfo]Kathryn Brenzel
