New York Residential Landlord-Tenant Law and Procedure is an essential resource that covers the fundamentals of residential landlord-tenant law and the procedural mechanics in landlord-tenant disputes. The authors offer practical guidance on tenancy, summary proceedings, nonpayment proceedings, illegal lockout/unlawful eviction actions and proceedings, and general and affirmative defenses to a residential landlord-tenant proceeding.
New York residential landlord-tenant law can be daunting to both newcomers and experienced attorneys given its complex statutory framework and conflicting case law, especially in the age of COVID-19. This edition includes a new section which covers the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act, the Tenant Safe Harbor Act, and administrative orders and civil court directives applicable after the expiration of this legislation. It also covers the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019, 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.
