Understanding New York Law
There are other rules and regulations that apply to landlords and tenants across New York. All landlords must ensure that their buildings are clean, safe and well maintained. This includes common areas like stairs and hallways. Landlords must also provide security measures, hot and cold water, heat and good lighting for each tenant. Tenants must pay agreed upon rent for the length of their lease. Most landlord and tenant disputes in Long Island occur when either landlords or tenants don't meet their responsibilities.
For landlords, problems with tenants usually revolve around two issues:
- Holdover is when a tenant stays in the home or apartment they're renting after the rental lease is over
- Non-Payment is when a tenant just stops paying rent.
Both of these cases will involve the landlord needing to get a warrant of eviction and financial compensation for any back-due rent.
What Actions Can You Take in Nassau County?
If your tenant refuses to leave after their lease is up or just decides to stop paying rent, the first step to take is to consult with experienced legal counsel. A notice needs to be sent to the tenant, but if the notice is not handled properly, it will be ineffective in the eyes of the law.
Taking your tenant to Housing Court is the best way to resolve your issues. Having an experienced New York landlord tenant issue attorney will help steer you through the legal process.
