Landlord-tenant issues are governed by the New York Real Property Law while any court actions would be controlled by the New York Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law. Both landlords and tenants require competent representation in often complex matters. Success in court, or in negotiations between parties, is due to good preparation and flexibility and creativity in thinking. Many courts have different rules and practices. The attorneys at HoganWillig take pride in their preparation and court skills and are well-versed in the drafting of commercial and residential leases and agreements which provide protection for our clients and often preclude the need for litigation.
