New York City landlords know that when a tenant falls behind in their rent payments, taking legal action is sometimes the only realistic option. Collecting delinquent rent or evicting a tenant for nonpayment can be difficult and costly without experienced counsel.
It is important to move quickly to protect your rights in nonpayment and eviction proceedings. At Nadel & Ciarlo we handle these cases on a regular basis and we know how to avoid the pitfalls that can ensnare those without experience in this area.
At Nadel & Ciarlo we represent New York City landlords and tenants in non-payment rent proceedings, holdover actions, and nuisance and lease violation cases. In representing landlords we know that a nonpaying tenant can quickly cause a significant financial loss. In non-payment cases we understand the importance of moving promptly to make a demand for past due rent and serve proper notice of nonpayment. We are familiar with the procedures necessary to ultimately obtain a judgment in court.
We are also familiar with lease disputes that do not involve non-payment of rent. We are experienced in holdover actions, in which the landlord seeks to regain possession of the property from a tenant who has violated lease provisions other than rent payment.
Landlord-tenant cases sometimes involve acrimonious disputes related to repair and maintenance issues. We may attempt to negotiate a resolution with the tenant if that is our client’s wish; if negotiations prove unsuccessful we are prepared to represent the landlord in New York Housing Court.
