Landlords: Avoid Costly Damages

Self-help — including eviction or taking back property on your own — is a dangerous choice for landlords.

Landlords that violate New York law may be liable to pay tenants triple damages if an eviction is later determined unlawful.

If you need to evict a tenant quickly, we can pursue a lawful eviction through summary proceeding under Article 7 of the NYS Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law (RPAPL). Article 7 provides an expedited method to evict tenants who have defaulted on their lease. The landlord may sue for past due rent in addition to seeking a lawful eviction. If the lease calls for accelerated rent, an action must be commenced in Supreme Court, New York’s trial level court. Our attorneys have extensive experience in Article 7 summary proceedings, accelerated rent actions in Supreme Court, and other landlord-tenant matters that may affect your rights.
