Landlord and Tenant Disputes in New York

About Landlord-Tenant Disputes

When landlords and tenants become embroiled in disputes or disagreements over supposed violations of lease terms or a proposed eviction, the situation will more often than not become incredibly heated. Both sides have a great deal at stake, whether the property in question is a residential apartment or a commercial property. The apartment renter is at risk of losing his or her living space and being forced into a rushed and costly move, while the commercial tenant faces similar problems along with the potentially disastrous cost of interrupted business operations and lost revenue. The landlord, on the other hand, may stand to lose considerable sums of money in lost rent payments, damage to property, or other costs. Whichever side of the issue you find yourself on, do not hesitate to contact a New York debt collection attorney at the Law Offices of Alden B. Smith for help.

In my nearly 30 years of practice experience, I have represented many clients in cases of this type, and I have had success in advocating for both landlords and tenants alike. Some of the most common examples of landlord-tenant disputes that I can help with include:

Holdover Cases
A landlord may begin to carry out an eviction after a tenant has committed a violation of the lease, has illegally allowed others to live in the unit, has engaged in behavior that constitutes a nuisance to other tenants in the building, or is overstaying the expiration of the lease.

Nonpayment Proceedings
When a tenant has failed to pay rent, the landlord must follow a set procedure for carrying out an eviction, which includes making an oral or written demand for payment, followed by filing forms with the court, serving papers on the tenant, and perhaps even going to court.

Yellowstone Injunctions
If a tenant has been served with a notice of lease default or a notice to cure describing how the lease has been violated, he or she only has a few days in which to either remedy the supposed default or violation or to go to court to request a Yellowstone injunction. This type of injunction effectively halts the eviction process, giving the tenant a longer period of time to correct the violation, contest the matter in court, or otherwise resolve the issue.
