In an area like New York City, there are millions of people acting as landlords and tenants. While most people are able to get along with one another, there are times when a relationship takes a turn for the worse.
In addition to common landlord tenant disputes, New York City is home to a variety of unique laws related to rent stabilization and rent control. This can make an agreement much more difficult to understand.
Some of the most common reasons for a landlord tenant dispute include:
-- Building violations
-- Issues of nonpayment
-- Failure to live up to the terms of the lease agreement
-- Illegal sublet
-- Prohibited tenant behavior
It doesn't matter what side of the fence you are on - a landlord or a tenant - you have to understand your rights. And of course, you should also be willing to look at the situation from the other person's perspective. This is often the best way to clear up a dispute before it goes too far.
