Helping You Resolve Residential Landlord Tenant Disputes

Unfortunately, whenever rental property is involved, disagreements happen between the landlord and the tenant.  Sometimes, the responsibility lies on one side, but other times, both parties have responsibility for the difficulties involved in the matter.

Even matters that seem very simple result in a large amount of legal complication.  If you are a landlord, you may be facing issues such as:

  • A tenant who violated the terms of the lease
  • Tenants paying rent late, wrong amounts, or not paying rent at all
  • Property damage caused by tenants
  • Eviction
  • Matters involving security deposits

Advocating for the Rights of Tenants Too

However, while tenants do cause some problems when involved in difficult situations with landlords, sometimes landlords are at fault too.  Common difficulties caused by landlords include:

  • Security deposit disputes
  • Breach of the warranty of habitability
  • Illegal lease provisions
  • Unlawful evictions
  • Rent overcharges
  • Landlord failing to make obligated repairs
  • Subletting issues

The highest court in the state of New York has described landlord tenant law as “an impenetrable thicket confusing not only to lay people, but to lawyers.”

Common Disputes our New York Landlord Tenant Lawyers Experience

Even though residential landlord tenant law is complex, we encounter a number of the same issues repeatedly.  Some of the most common types of eviction suits we encounter include:

  • Non-Payment Disputes – This kind of proceeding happens when a tenant fails to pay rent according to the original agreement.  In most cases, the landlord has provided numerous warnings to the tenant.  If the tenant is at fault but pays rent prior to the court date, the court will dismiss the case.
  • Holdover Disputes – If non-payment is not the reason for the eviction, or if there is no written agreement, or if the lease term hasn’t yet expired, holdover proceedings occur.  This type of eviction gives the tenant no room to pay back the rent.  Even if he or she is able, it is still likely the tenant can be removed from the premises.
