Landlord-Tenant Disputes | What to Know

Landlord-Tenant Disputes | What to Know

It is very common for tenants to rent apartments and office spaces from landlords in New York City. Tenants and landlords enter into an agreement when this transaction occurs. This document is put into place to ensure that each party receives what they deserve. The landlord must monitor the situation to be aware of the living conditions that their tenants are faced with. The tenant must pay the proper bills to maintain ownership of the space for a certain timeframe. However, when tenants and landlords cannot agree on something, the livelihood of both parties can be disrupted. For example, tenants may become dissatisfied with their living environment. On the other hand, the landlord may argue that tenants are causing damage to the premises. No matter the case, it is important that you turn to our New York City real estate attorneys for your landlord-tenant disputes. Our legal team is prepared to take on your case when you are ready.
