DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
In support of their motion for leave to enter a default judgment against the respondent upon his failure to appear or to answer the complaint, the plaintiffs failed to proffer either an affidavit of the facts or a complaint verified by a party with personal knowledge of the facts as required by CPLR 3215(f) (see Peniston v Epstein, 10 AD3d 450; DeVivo v Sparago, 287 AD2d 535, 536; Fiorino v Yung Poon Yung, 281 AD2d 513). Accordingly, the Supreme Court properly denied the motion.
MASTRO, J.P., FISHER, MILLER, DICKERSON and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
