Landlord / Tenant Law

Let Tilem & Associates, PC Handle Your Case

At Tilem & Associates, PC, we are committed to helping landlords and tenants resolve disputes related to commercial and residential leases. Our White Plains landlord-tenant lawyers regularly work with tenants and landlords throughout Westchester County, including Larchmont, White Plains, Yonkers, and Mamaroneck. Our lawyers work closely with clients on every aspect of the landlord-tenant relationship in residential and commercial matters.

Some of the issues our lawyers routinely handle include:

  • Lease drafting and review
  • Eviction and holdover actions
  • Nonpayment proceedings
  • Illegal evictions
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Constructive eviction cases
  • Breach of warranty of habitability
  • Security deposits
  • Utility bills
  • Landlord liens
  • Subleases and assignments
  • Collection actions
  • Holdover proceedings
  • Mold issues

We do not recommend dealing with any of these issues without the help of a capable landlord-tenant attorney in the White Plains area. Because of the high rents in New York, the stakes are high. And landlord / tenant law is known for being very complicated. For example, in New York, rent regulation can set the maximum legal rent for a particular apartment and can further limit rent increases, reduction of services, and the right to terminate a tenancy.

And evictions are also complex. There are strict laws about eviction summary proceedings, which are governed by the New York Real Property Action and Proceedings Law. A landlord must draft and serve 30-day and 3-day notices. Then he or she may petition for eviction on the basis of either nonpayment of rent or “holdover,” in which people want to overstay the terms of their lease.

Avoid Disputes From the Beginning

Our White Plains landlord-tenant attorneys regularly help resolve disputes that stem from badly constructed leases. We know from experience that the most cost-effective option is to avoid litigation by drafting commercial and residential leases that clearly define the rights and responsibilities of the landlord-tenant relationship. However, when litigation cannot be avoided, we have the experience to handle any dispute between tenants and landlords. Our law firm is committed to helping protect our clients’ rights.
