Housing Court Lawyer NYC
New York City’s Housing Court is a very busy place as over 625,000 civil cases pass before the bench. By the end of 2011 the greater NYC area had 2,104,816 renters in NYC comprising 68% of the housing market. This means a lot of renters with complaints who want to go to court. The NY Housing Authority, for example, saw a 40% increase in suits filed against them by tenants in 2011. So as a landlord, you have to see your renters not only as your source of revenue but as potential plaintiff filing a suit against you. When this happens you need a competent NYC housing court lawyer like the ones you will find at Cohen, Hochman and Allen.
Complex Web of Laws & Codes
Being a landlord is not an easy thing in NYC given the many codes, regulations and laws which all must be met to be in compliance.
