I have a question regarding my rights as a renter… 2

Many times I write about the topics regarding Landlord/Tenants from the landlords side. Today I am going to write about some issues that Tenants may have and some answers for them.

In the state of New York there are very specific guidelines for Landlords that both protect the Tenants rights and theirs. Everything is clearly laid out to make it easy to understand who does what and what will happen in the event that someone fails to live up to their part of the agreement.

To answer many of your questions you can visit the NY State Tenant’s Rights Guide for answers to such questions as:

  • What is a lease?
  • How can a lease be terminated?
  • What if my landlord decides to sell?
  • Can I have pets?
  • What if the neighbors are bad?
  • What is the requirement for disclosing lead paint in the property?
  • What is Fair housing? What if I am being discriminated against?
  • What repairs are my landlord required to do?
  • Are there any resources out there for finding an apartment?
  • Who do I call if my landlord is breaking the law?
