landlord-tenant disputes Archives

What is the legal way for landlords to enter a rental unit?

It is your property. You own it, so you can go inside of a unit whenever you need to, right? Well, sure, it is your property, but your tenants have rights, and one of those is the right to privacy. As a responsible New York landlord, you need to enter your properties occasionally for repairs or maintenance. How can you accomplish this without starting a costly and time-consuming landlord-tenant dispute?

Reducing your legal and financial risks as a New York landlord

Renting out real estate is one of the most successful ways to improve your income. New York landlord-tenant laws are more complex than property laws in many other states. This means that being a landlord in the state is not without some amount of risk.

Potential landlord-tenant issues from New York’s rent reform

The Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (TPA) was signed into law this past June, affecting more than one million apartments in New York City alone. Supporters say the law provides strong protections for tenants and significantly changes the Empire State's rent laws.

An advocate can help New York landlords avoid legal trouble

Most landlords in Queens may not have a legal advocate to protect their interests. As attorneys, we understand this. After all, legal assistance can be costly and most property owners do not want to spend money unnecessarily. Unfortunately, saving a buck or two right now might cost you more down the line if landlord-tenant disputes arise.

3 most common disputes between landlords and tenants

Many disagreements can happen between New York landlords and their tenants due to conflicting views over a lease agreement. Conflicts are frequent between renters and landlords whether it’s over repairs or the return of a security deposit.

Landlords must make reasonable accommodations for tenants

The Fair Housing Act of 1968 prevents any landlord from discriminating against potential tenants. That may sound simple and straightforward. However, there are many more aspects of this act that New York landlords must understand, so they can avoid accusations of discrimination.

New York rent reform will impact landlords

Affordable housing is a hot-button issue these days. Prospective renters have long been concerned with housing costs and the state of New York is listening. As many current laws come up for renewal in Summer 2019, significant changes could be on the way. Governor Andrew Cuomo has favored rent reform.

Can you get a felony for renting?

Many renters act responsibly, according to the terms of their lease. If you have a rental agreement, you likely pay your rent on time, adhere to the pet restrictions and understand that you will have to pay for any damage you cause to your rental unit.
