Landlord and tenant law in New York State is driven by both legislation and
case law, with the law constantly evolving into complicated rules and
procedures that often invoke other, interrelated areas of law. Litigation in
this field is complex, and the administrative procedures, filing limitations,
evidentiary requirements and other procedural demands can be abstract without
the skilled guidance of a practiced lawyer whose practice emphasizes landlord
and tenant law.

step of the way. Because of the personalized attention our attorneys gives each
case, we knows exactly what stage the case is at and can inform the client with
a telephone call.

2. The landlord has prematurely terminated the tenancy because of
a breach or violation of the lease. Examples of breaches or violations of the
lease include the tenant illegally subletting or assigning the lease, failing

provision that allows the landlord to prematurely terminate the lease if it
intends to demolish the building or gut-renovate the building.
