Effective New York Real Estate Attorney Represents Renters in Landlord-Tenant Disputes
Skilled lawyer assists tenants in the New York City area with legal issues
People who rent properties to live in or conduct business have rights under their lease agreements that must be upheld. As an experienced real estate litigator with The Law Office of Tamara I. Jordan, PLLC, I represent residential and commercial tenants in the New York City area and throughout New York in a wide range of landlord-tenant issues. I will ensure that the terms of your lease meet state and federal requirements and assist with disputes when your rights under the terms of your lease are being violated.
Experienced real estate counselor handles a range of tasks for tenants
I draw upon my substantial knowledge of real estate, contracts and property rights to help New York tenants:
- Review rental leases
- Resolve landlord-tenant disputes
- Defend against unjust evictions
- Demand return of security deposits that have been unfairly held
- Uphold their rights against discrimination
I am dedicated to ensuring you know your rights as a tenant and handling disputes when property owners violate those rights.
Diligent lawyer reviews leases to ensure fairness
Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted lease agreement that enumerates all rental terms. I discuss the particulars of a property and its occupancy and ensure that your lease covers all aspects of your rental agreement. I want you to feel confident that the agreement you sign is in compliance with New York law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.
Proven advocate protects tenants’ rights to security deposits
New York law specifies the usage, retention and return of security deposits paid by tenants. If your landlord fails to follow these regulations, I can help you collect what is due to you. I will first pursue the most cost-effective route of obtaining payment from your landlord but will assertively defend your rights in court when necessary.
Diligent attorney protects tenants in eviction actions
Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, I can help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, I will protect your right to remain in your home.
