Fundamentals of New York Evictions

April 25

Learn the fundamentals of the New York eviction process as well as legal concepts regarding landlord and tenant law.

You will be introduced to the landlord and tenant field and will be taken step by step through the beginning stages of a case. Landlord and tenant cases are often won (or lost) before the case is even filed. A myriad of legal and factual issues need to be examined, understood, and dealt with in order to bring a winnable case on behalf of a landlord. If you are representing tenants, this is the topic where you will learn about some great defenses.

Furthermore, you will learn to initiate Summary Proceedings for the Recovery of Real Property pursuant to the Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law, and will learn how to successfully prosecute (or defend) the case through motion practice and trial. We will also cover how to think strategically about these cases and employ gamesmanship to obtain desired objectives.

Moreover, we will explore the things that come toward the end of a landlord and tenant matter, although last does not make these important issues least. We will be exploring the many routine and specialized clauses of a stipulation of settlement, the intricate details that surround an eviction, how to make a motion for attorneys' fees, and the appellate process, including stays pending appeal.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to define the core legal concepts underlying landlord and tenant law.

- You will be able to describe how to evict tenants or defend tenants in eviction proceedings.

- You will be able to identify and define various occupancy relationships - such as what is a tenant at sufferance, and what is a licensee.

- You will be able to recognize the differences between a summary proceeding and regular plenary lawsuits.
