Actress Faye Dunaway is heading to court in October (11) to fight her landlord's attempts to evict her from a New York apartment.
The Oscar winner currently leases a one-bedroom, rent-stabilised apartment in Manhattan's Upper East Side for just over $1,000 (£625) a month - almost half the going rate for the area.
Her landlord Henry Moses Jr. filed a lawsuit against the actress in a bid to have her evicted, claiming she's not eligible for rent regulation as she spends most of her time in Los Angeles. State laws require tenants to use rent-controlled properties as their primary residence.
The star hit back by alleging the apartment was in a state of disrepair and offered up her keys to the landlord, insisting she had moved out in May (11).
Dunaway and her landlord's attorneys met up on Thursday (11Aug11) before Judge John Stanley in New York City Civil Court, but the hearing was adjourned.
Dunaway has decided to fight against the eviction and will return to court on 04 October (11).
Her lawyer Elizabeth Shollenberger told reporters, "We didn't come to a settlement today. She has not moved out. There's water damage in the apartment that she said she's been complaining about for years. For someone who is an older person, having water damage leads to all kinds of mould problems, respiratory problems."
