Renting in New York can be difficult, and unfortunately, some tenants are still discriminated against by landlords. An example of discrimination can be seen in a lawsuit filed by a lesbian couple against their landlord.
Evicting a tenant in New York can be a complicated process for landlords. There are several reasons landlords start eviction proceedings with tenants, including lease violations and not paying rent. Violating the terms of a lease agreement is one of the most common reasons landlords evict tenants, and a recent eviction dispute in New York shows just how far some landlords will go to legally evict a tenant suspected of violating her lease.
