Long Island mortgage deadbeat wants another eviction delay because of COVID
A Long Island man claims he should be allowed to stay in his house — even though he hasn’t paid the mortgage in more than 20 years — because he contracted COVID-19.
Guramrit Hanspal, 52, has leveraged the courts to avoid being booted from his two-story East Meadow home, filing multiple lawsuits and bankruptcies in a so far successful bid to stay without having paid a penny since 1998.
Hanspal’s latest gambit to stay is to claim he suffered financial hardship because he was diagnosed with the coronavirus, according to a Thursday proceeding in Nassau County Housing Court.
The Kenmore Street home, which was foreclosed on years ago, is currently owned by a company called Diamond Ridge Partners, which is seeking to oust Hanspal.
