Tenants facing ejectment action in New York City or those considering filing a civil suit for rent overcharge can now request an appointment with the firm which is well-versed in every aspect of landlord-tenant disputes. When approached David L. Moss and Associates provides no-charges case evaluation to tenants harassed by landlords. The treatment given to the tenants by landlords must conform to legal guidelines and if the tenants feel that these are violated, they have the legal remedy of filing a civil suit.
“To get possession of his/her property from the tenant, a landlord is allowed to initiate an ejectment action. Depending on the property worth, the action is started in the Civil or Supreme Court. However to safeguard his/her interest a tenant can stop the eviction process by approaching the court that issued the warrant of eviction. When filing a civil suit, one has a degree of control over both the timing and the relief to be requested in the case. Moreover, one is also entitled to discovery, which means you can request the court to direct the landlord produce documents important to the case. The decision can be in your favour, provided you are represented well in the court,” commented a senior lawyer with the firm.
There are mostly two ways in which landlords harass tenants either by charging unlawful amounts of rent or applying for ejectment in the law courts. In both cases dedicated lawyers at David L. Moss and Associates can come to their rescue. In the prior case, the landlord must establish that the rent hikes applied are lawful. For rent controlled tenants, the DHCR may investigate to the commencement of the tenancy. To verify the rent hike, documentary proof including the contracts and proof of payment must be produced. With right representation a tenant can gain triple damages for all rent overcharges occurred during the two years prior to the filing of rent overcharge complaint. In the latter case tenants can assert their rights and fight ejectment proceedings with the right lawyers by their side.
