Residential Landlord Law

Defending the Rights of Landlords

When landlords and tenants get involved in lease disputes, there is a tendency for people to be more sympathetic with the tenant. Faced with the possibility of eviction and having no place to live, the tenant is seen as the "underdog" or the "little guy." While there are many cases on record where a tenant has been treated unfairly, it is easy to overlook the fact that landlords have rights, too. As a landlord, you take considerable risks by investing your own capital in purchasing and maintaining residential properties. When a tenant is delinquent in paying rent or is causing problems on the property, you deserve to have dedicated legal representation to help you resolve the situation favorably.

Advantages of Hiring a New York City Landlord Tenant Attorney

Hiring a landlord tenant attorney in NYC to advise you and represent you in a legal dispute with a tenant is highly advisable, and may be the most effective measure you can take toward safeguarding your personal interests in the situation. Even minor procedural mistakes in the process of eviction could make it impossible for you to carry out the action or could expose you to allegations of housing discrimination. You could stand to lose large sums of money in lost rents and even penalties for failure to properly prepare the case and take the right actions at each stage of the situation.

If you have a tenant who is not paying you the monthly rent or has otherwise violated the terms of your lease, you could be losing thousands of dollars per month—money you may not be able to afford and which is rightfully yours. With our help, you may be able to win a possessory judgment in court, an order which makes it possible for you to legally order the eviction of your tenant.

Possessory Vs. Holdover Judgements

Possessory judgments are available in cases of non-payment, as well as in holdover cases. Holdover refers to situations where the tenant has violated the lease through actions such as overstaying the expiration of the lease, posing a nuisance to other tenants or housing more people in the unit than are allowed by the terms of the lease. In either case, it is necessary to prove to the judge that the tenant is infringing on your rights and that you therefore have grounds for eviction.
