- Hon. Gerald Lebovits; Damon P. Howard, Esq.; Michelle Maratto Itkowitz, Esq.
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 Residential 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 covers the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act (HSTPA), which 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. Also covered in this edition is the COVID-19 Emergency Evictions and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020. This Act was passed in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency and the resulting destabilized hosing situation which affected both tenants and owners. A copy of the Act is included in the Appendix.
