Faye Dunaway Facing EVICTION for NOTliving in her NYC Apartment! You read it RIGHT!

By
Property Manager with Gibson Management Group, Ltd.

Faye Dunaway is being evicted from her RENTcontrolled 1 bedroom NYC apartment BECAUSE SHE DOES NOT LIVE THERE.  She has rented the apartment since 1994 for a little over $1,000 per month. 


Her grown son has stayed in the apartment over the years and recently tweeted that he does NOT live in NYC; however, Dunaway owns property in CA, is registered to vote in CA, has cars registered in CA and has a CA driver's license.  Meanwhile, after a similar case a few years ago, Dunaway signed a lease that ended July, 2011.  When she did not vacate the apartment, her landlord filed for her eviction on August 2.

 Since there appears to be a 3 hour time difference between NY and CA and she just learned of the suit on the internet, she has started leaving voicemail messages for NYC press and media that she will fight the eviction because the apartment has water damage and mold potential (Affectionately known in NYC rent control circles as the Biance Jagger defense) AND she had her attorney call the landlord's attorney and offer to talk about a settlement for her departure. 

MEANWHILE, I am wondering if La Dunaway's publicist sees the POOR TASTE in Dunaway's fighting an eviction from a home she does not live in WHILE many of her fans are having to fight to stay in the home they DO live in? 

Here's hoping she can be EVICTED and the landlord can REGAIN possession of his property and RErent it to a family who deserves it at $2,000 per month.

Hi Wallace-Though I have been a fan of the Faye for many many decades I was appalled when I read that story a couple weekes ago in the Times. I just spent time with a friend at her home in Europe that was complaining about having to go to court in NYC to fight an eviction from her rent controlled apartment in NYC. Some people just do not get it!

ps-did you read the part that mentioned Faye drives herself around Los Angeles in a 1997 Toyota?

Marco * yes.  Hopefully Toyota will get their FIRST NASCAR Cup championship with Kyle Busch this year and make up for THAT bad press!

PS * I suspect she has a CA "car service" on speed dial

Good morning Wallace. I agree with you here. I guess Valerie said it best, "astounding, enormous sense of entitlement." Incredible and appalling.

New York City rent law is crazy.  With stories like this it's no wonder we have a shortage of rentals in Manhattan.

Hello Wallace - I wonder when Faye switched from that amazing person most of us loved...to this aging diva who feels entitled because of who she WAS!

OY!  Miss Dunaway will put up a good fight on this one, but I have a feeling she's fighting a losing battle.  Like Marco, I'm a fan of hers and have been for years, but what's right is right.  I agree with you 100% on this one.

I suspect she keeps it because it is probably CHEAPER than several nights in an NYC hotel.  There is CHEAP and then there is CRAZY!

Well I'm sure that's the reason Wallace, but it just isn't right.  And like she can't afford a hotel?

Don't get me wrong I don't like it when very rich people get stuff for free when the rest of us sweat our back sides off just to get by.... but if she signed a lease that the landlord provided... why is she fighting it now...her lease is UP!

NYC rent control statutes are fairly strict.  I suspect the public media * the landlord's attorney issued a press release when the case was filed in early August * is not sitting well with her and now she is having second thoughts about staying and is trying to spin her leaving as her idea
