Assisting Landlords And Tenants With Eviction Notices
The process of evicting a tenant is complex, with the courts having sole jurisdiction in the final decision. Certain steps must be taken to protect the rights of both landlords and tenants. At The Law Office of Seth Rosenfeld, Esq., in Forest Hills, New York, we possess insight from representing both sides in contentious landlord-tenant disputes.
Attorney Seth Rosenfeld — founder of our New York law firm — serves as a first responder when time is truly of the essence for his clients facing eviction proceedings. He has over 15 years of experience with landlord-tenant law issues in the city, and he knows what to do to help clients resolve complex legal problems.
Finding Solutions To Help You With Your Eviction Needs
We educate our tenant clients on what they should do and what their landlord should not be doing. Threats of violence or to remove possessions from the dwelling are not allowed. Denying water, heat and other essential services violates rights. Illegally locking out a tenant prior to serving any papers can have severe repercussions for the property owner.
Area landlords can rely on our firm for equally aggressive representation and protection of their rights in tenant evictions and disputes. We help them take action against tenants violating their leases or chronically late or overdue on their rent payments. On their behalf, we do the following:
- Conduct summary nonpayment court proceedings to pay rent and recover past-due payments
- Conduct summary holdover proceedings for tenants holding over past the lease or violating a substantial obligation in the lease, the law or their tenancy rights
- Obtain judgments of possession and warrants to evict
