An Experienced Real Estate Lawyer Drafting Your Lease
Residential and commercial leases are governed not only by standard contract law but also by specific laws that apply to the landlord/tenant relationship.
We have the experience to draft a lease agreement that accurately reflects your intentions and complies with the law. We can also scrutinize a lease agreement proposed by the other party and advise you as to whether the terms of the proposed lease are in your interests.
Clarifying Your Rights in an Eviction or Other Dispute
Eviction – whether it’s instigated by non-payment of rent, violations of the terms of the lease or refusal of the tenant to leave after the lease has expired – is a complex process. Many landlords and tenants are not aware of their rights or the rights of the other party.
It is best not to take any action in a landlord/tenant dispute without legal advice. This applies not only to eviction disputes but also to disputes related to property damage and security deposit issues.
Also, if you believe your landlord is not living up to the terms of your lease, you should not simply withhold the rent. Consult with a qualified attorney instead.
Issues between landlords and tenants are a source of many legal disputes in the New York City area. Get on the right track by contacting the Law Office of Phil Napolitano today.
