Product Description:
New York residential landlord-tenant law is daunting to newcomers and the experienced alike, given its divergent statutory framework, discordant case law, and emotion-laden disputes involving homes, money, and the charged landlord-tenant relationship. This practice guide introduces the fundamentals of residential landlord-tenant law and offers a guide to the procedural mechanics practitioners face in landlord-tenant disputes.

This edition offers practical advice on tenancy, summary proceedings, nonpayment proceedings, illegal lockout/unlawful eviction actions and proceedings, general and affirmative defenses to a residential landlord-tenant proceeding, and includes many forms.

Recent case law has been added throughout the publication. Forms have been reviewed and updated as needed. The 2016-2017 release is current through the 2016 New York State legislative session.
