What’s the best way to enforce your rights as a landlord?

Do you own a residential property or commercial property that you rent out to a tenant? Are you facing the difficult situation of a tenant who is behind on rent and/or unwilling to pay for one reason or another?

While every lease situation is unique, it's important that you know your legal rights and the type of action you should take. Here are some of the specific procedures that may come into play:

  • Nonpayment rent proceeding, such as serving notice of nonpayment to the tenant
  • Settlements, including installment terms, partial payment, and out of court resolutions
  • Initiating an eviction
  • Holdover actions
  • Rent demands
  • Three, five and 10 day notices
  • Construction eviction claims
  • Plenary action
  • Supreme Court action

As you can imagine, you need to know which step to take and at what time it makes the most sense.

At our law firm, we have many years of experience with all of these specific procedures. We help our clients understand what action to take and how to follow up from there.

It's never easy to enforce your rights as a landlord, which is why you put so much time into attempting to find the right tenant. Even so, you never know when something could go wrong in the future.

If you ever need to enforce your rights, you shouldn't hesitate to do so. You have a tough job as a landlord, so there is nothing wrong with requiring that your tenant live up to his or her end of the lease. Sometimes all it takes is a push in the right direction to get your tenant back on track.
