Effective NY Landlord-Tenant Attorney Represents Renters
Solving legal issues for those living in apartments
As an experienced real estate litigator at Law Office of Barry S. Schwartz, I create solutions for tenants. I successfully bring tenants comfort that they are living in a stable, well-maintained home. I have committed my substantial knowledge about real estate, contracts and property rights to helping NY clients:
- Review rental leases
- Resolve landlord-tenant disputes
- Successfully defend against unjust evictions
- Demand return of security deposits that have been unfairly held
- Uphold tenants’ rights against discrimination
Our New York attorneys are dedicated to fighting for the rights of renters throughout NY.
Reviewing leases for your protection
Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all rental terms. I discuss the particulars of a property and its occupancy and ensure that your lease covers all aspects of your rental agreement. I want you to feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with NY law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.
Protecting tenants’ rights to security deposits
NY law specifies the usage, retention and return of security deposits. If your landlord fails to follow these strict regulations, I can help you to collect what is due to you. I first pursue the most cost-effective route of demanding payment from your landlord. If necessary, I will assertively defend your rights in court.
Resolving an eviction crisis
Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, I help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, I protect your right to remain in your home.
