Experienced Landlord Tentant Lawyers
Landlord-tenant proceedings are technical in nature, and they are commenced in the local district courts as expedited proceedings. If the notice of petition and/or petition is improperly drafted or served, oftentimes the proceeding will be dismissed, forcing the petitioner to start the proceeding all over again. Our landlord-tenant lawyers know the pitfalls of the landlord-tenant practice, and we take care in drafting the appropriate legal documents and are diligent in the timely filing of those documents.
If you are a landlord and wish to evict a tenant for failure to pay rent, for violating the provisions of the lease agreement, or for staying past the time a lease agreement has expired or been terminated, our Suffolk County landlord lawyers can help. We will prepare all paperwork, ensure that the tenant is properly served, conduct all proceedings in court, prepare the judgment of possession and warrant of eviction, and file those documents with the sheriff to collect on a money judgment and to evict your tenant.
If you are a tenant and your landlord is violating the terms of your lease or seeking to evict you, our Suffolk County tenant attorneys can ensure that your rights are protected. We will raise the appropriate defenses to any action commenced, including a breach of your warranty of habitability (landlord not providing you with suitable living conditions) and seek abatement (offset) of rent.
