New landlord tenant laws for 2019

4 Replies

Does anyone know what the new laws are or how some old laws have changed regarding landlord/tenant issues?

I know that there were some changes recently (june14) but cant seem to get a clear answer on what they are. 

Ultimately I want to put a system in place for evicting a tenant. I hope inwint ever have to. But I want to be prepared in case the need arises.

I'd also like to know if I need to update the lease according to any new changes.

It's very very tenant friendly.  Any system you have in place is most likely now illegal.  It's pretty disheartening.  I just spoke with my attorney this afternoon about it.  The NY Board of Realtors released a guidance document a few weeks ago.  It's on one of the NY threads from the last month in main forums, or you can search the net for it.
