Oved & Oved LLP’s Landlord-Tenant attorneys bring a wealth and depth of experience and knowledge to the intricate regulatory scheme governing the unique legal relationship between landlords and tenants in New York City. We are adept at understanding the rent regulatory laws such as the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, Rent Control and Loft Law, and at handling landlord tenant disputes. We routinely navigate our clients, whether they be landlords or tenants, through the complicated regulatory maze of the judicial process, whether such process be in Housing Court, Civil Court or Supreme Court so that they can make an informed business decision.

Disputes between landlords and tenants can arise for a myriad of reasons. Often, eviction notices such as notices to cure or notices of default, notices to quit, notices of termination, and nonpayment and holdover petitions are necessary to enforce an owner or landlord’s rights and just as often such notices and petitions need to be defended by a tenant.

Developers face unique legal hurdles as well. Demolition and assemblage issues need to be addressed and strategized. Tenants may need to be bought out, relocated or evicted. Tenants facing these issues are just as often concerned that their rights be protected as well. Having handled countless such matters on behalf of both landlords and tenants, the firm’s Landlord-Tenant attorneys are experts at advising and representing such clients in all aspects of this process, on either side of the dispute.

The firm’s attorneys are also adept at representing owners and landlords in commencing and prosecuting both residential and commercial non-payment proceedings and holdover proceedings on such grounds as owner occupancy, non-primary residence, illegal subletting, and lease defaults. These also include issues such as rights of succession, illusory tenancy, properly exercised options and interpretation of additional rent provisions. In addition, we are just as comfortable defending against such actions on behalf of residential and commercial tenants.
