New York residential landlord-tenant law can be daunting to both newcomers and experienced attorneys, given its complex statutory framework and discordant case law. New York Landlord-Tenant Law and Procedure is an essential resource for any attorney handling a landlord-tenant matter. Covering the fundamentals of residential landlord-tenant law and the procedural mechanics in landlord-tenant disputes, it offers practical guidance on tenancy, summary proceedings, nonpayment proceedings, illegal lockout/unlawful eviction actions and proceedings, general and affirmative defenses to a residential landlord-tenant proceeding.
This edition is current through 2019 and covers the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 ("HSTPA"), which has dramatically altered New York's residential-rental landscape and affects many aspects of the law, from security deposits to the day-to-day procedures of eviction proceedings and plenary actions in upstate and downstate New York.
