New York residential landlord-tenant law is daunting to newcomers and the experienced alike, given its patchwork statutory frame work, discordant case law, and emotion-laden disputes involving homes, money, and the charged landlord-tenant relationship. This practice guide introduces the fundamentals of residential landlord-tenant law and offers a guide to the procedural mechanics practitioners face in landlord-tenant disputes.
The 2013-2014 release is a complete reprint and is current through the 2013 New York State legislative session.
This edition expands on the previous version with coverage of new case law and recent statutory developments. It also introduces the substantive fundamentals of residential landlord-tenant law and offers a guide to the procedural mechanics practitioners face in landlord-tenant disputes. It offers practical advice on tenancy, summary proceedings, nonpayment proceedings, illegal lockout/unlawful eviction actions and proceedings, general and affirmative defenses to a residential landlord-tenant proceeding, and includes many forms.
