The relationship between a landlord and tenant has the potential to be both complex and challenging. New York City tenants need safe places to live that they can afford. Landlords need tenants who meet their required obligations and comply with rental agreements.
Unfortunately, however, disputes between landlords and tenants do arise. Whether a dispute is due to a tenant’s huge increase in rent, as this blog reported in a previous post, or due to matters of habitability, the legal issues surrounding a landlord-tenant dispute can be complex.
Whatever side of a dispute a New Yorker finds himself on, it may be necessary to seek legal counsel. Attorney Seth Rosenfeld has more than 13 years of experience assisting tenants and landlords with housing matters. Whether a person needs protection from an unreasonable landlord, or a landlord needs to evict a tenant who is not complying with his or her legal obligations, Mr. Rosenfeld has likely dealt with providing legal counsel in similar cases.
It is imperative that both landlords and tenants comply with all legal requirements in their interactions. The terms of a lease can affect required notices, the refund of a security deposit and other maintenance obligations. Whether a tenant is illegally subletting an apartment or creating a nuisance, or the terms of a lease have allegedly been breached, Mr. Rosenfeld has worked with clients to protect their rights.
It is not easy to be involved in a dispute about either your place of residence or rental property you own. Skilled legal counsel can help make a difficult situation easier.
