New York Landlord Tenant Dispute Resolution
Landlord tenant law concerns landlord's and tenant's rights and responsibilities. Because the apartment you rent is your own personal space, the law places many limits on landlords' activities. For example, if a landlord tries to make you move without giving you enough notice, or ignores a rat infestation in your apartment, a landlord / tenant lawyer knows what options you have as a tenant. On the other hand, a landlord / tenant lawyer also helps landlords who have tenants breaking rules, such as conducting illegal activities and or refusing to pay rent. Landlord tenant laws are very specific, with different rules in each town, village, and city court.
You need to contact an experienced landlord tenant attorney at the first indication of a landlord tenant dispute.
