Staten Island Landlord Attorney

Your rights are important and deserve protection. As a tenant, you are entitled to living conditions that do not pose a threat to your health and safety and lawful treatment by your landlord. The New York tenant rights dictate that the property owner should not discriminate against you when looking for a house or under the lease. The regulations governing your lease are your protection.

On the other hand, the property owner expects you to pay your rent on time, keep the terms of your lease, and respect other tenants. If anyone of you violates any one of the rules or terms, you can be sued for breach of contract. At Stark Law PLLC, we can offer legal advice on avoiding future disputes or handling your current landlord-tenant dispute.

Finding a Lawyer in New York

We have different approaches to our clients' issues depending on the details of their case. 

Tenants

 

We understand that you have responsibility and rights, and we can assist you if your dispute involves:

Loss of personal property

Depending on how the loss occurred, we can negotiate for payment of damages.

Repair and maintenance

In case your landlord has failed to maintain the property to a certain standard as defined in the rental agreement, we can sue them for breach of warranty of habitability.

Discrimination

We can help you sue a landlord that discriminates against you. No property owner is allowed to discriminate against a potential or current tenant because of race, culture, religion, sex, nationality, physical or mental disability, or family status.

Unlawful eviction

You are entitled to damages if you are forced to leave your home due to bad conditions or without reasonable cause. If your landlord turns off the utilities making the conditions uninhabitable, reach out to our Staten Island Landlord Attorney. We will ensure your rights are defended.

Landlords

Our legal services for landlords include:

Unpaid rent

In case your tenant fails to pay, we will help you explore the available options to secure your payments.

Eviction

A property owner may evict someone who has breached the lease agreement or refused to pay rent. If you evict the tenant wrongfully, they may be entitled to damages. We will help you draft notices and follow the rules to ensure a legal eviction.

Property damage

If your tenant alters your property's original condition without your consent, they are liable to pay for damages. We will help you choose the best remedies to recover the damages.

Security deposit

You can easily handle a security deposit dispute on your own. However, if you want to consult with a landlord representation lawyer in NYC, we can guide you through the process.

Are you experiencing a dispute with a tenant or a property owner, and you wonder where to start? Many property owners and tenants do not understand the intricacies of their contracts. We can help you get through the complex maze of rules and regulations to help you build a case.
