New York landlord laws/books

4 Replies

The single best resource I have found regarding navigating the morass of legal jargon in NY is an out-of-print Nolo book called "The New York Landlord's Law Book."  It's a bit dated at this point,  but I have personally found it very useful addressing some of the topics you've mentioned.  It's VERY thorough.

I am sure there are other resources online, but none I have found dive as deep as the above book.

Many New York State landlord/tenant regulations are jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction (in practice, if not statute), rather than state-wide.  A local landlord/tenant lawyer, or local landlord association, may be good resources as well.  Or attend a few sessions of your local landlord/tenant court (better than tv lol!).
