PRESENT: LaCAVA, J.P., NICOLAI and LaSALLE, JJ
The judgment, after a non-jury trial, dismissed the action.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs.
Plaintiff commenced this small claims action to recover, among other things, $200 in fines and a $25 late charge imposed upon him by defendant. After a non-jury trial, the City Court dismissed the action, finding that the fines and late charge had been properly imposed as plaintiff had failed to comply with defendant's leasing policy in that he had not provided defendant with a renewal lease, along with a $300 renewal fee, 30 days prior to the expiration of his tenant's then-current lease.
Upon a review of the record, it is our view that the City Court correctly found that the fines and late charge totaling $225 had been properly assessed against plaintiff since he had failed to comply with defendant's "House Rules." In view of the foregoing, we conclude that substantial justice was done between the parties according to the rules and principles of substantive law (UCCA 1804, 1807). Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed.
