Residential Holdover Proceedings

A core area of our practice is prosecuting residential holdover proceedings based upon violations of lease and law. We service all of New York City, Long Island, and Westchester counties. We regularly handle:

  • Non-primary residence
  • Chronic nonpayment
  • Owner's use
  • Illegal subletting (including defending against succession claims)
  • Nuisance
  • Violation of no-pet clause
  • Expiration of term
  • Illegal alteration/illegal use
  • Breaches of a substantial obligation of tenancy
  • Short term rental/bed & breakfast
  • Objectionable conduct

We maintain a critical understanding of ongoing changes in the relevant legislation and case law as it affects both landlord and tenant claims and defenses.

Our experienced partners will consult with you concerning the facts, to prepare preliminary notices and proceedings and to aggressively pursue your claims.
