Rent Stabilized Apartments: Rent Increases Approved.

On May 1, 2012, in Landlord-Tenant, by John A. Weber IV, ESQ.

Today, it was decided that the rent  increases for rent stabilized apartments in New York will be 3% on 1 year leases and 6% on 2 year leases.  These rent increases are down from last year but definitely higher than rumored earlier this month.  The topic has attracted much publicity in the New York area over the past few weeks.  It had been thought that the rent increases would be denied and the current rental rates for this year would freeze for the time being.  Now that the increase has been approved, landlords for Rent Stabilized buildings can begin to prepare for offering their renewal leases with the increased rates.

We will post more about this topic in the next week.  If you are a landlord in a rent stabilized building and need assistance preparing a renewal lease or commencing eviction proceedings, please feel free to call (516) 858-2620 to speak with a Landlord Tenant Attorney!

Familial Exception to Evictions

Familial Exception to Evictions

Although unfortunate, there are many situations where a person may wish to evict a family member from their property.  It seems that a very common misconception exists.  It seems that most people think that if the family member is over the age of 21, they can be evicted by simple summary proceedings.  This is not the case at all.  These special cases fall under what is known in New York as the Familial Exceptions to Evictions by Summary Proceedings.  This familial exception to evictions applies to designated types of relationships which have developed over time through case law.  If the type of relative that you are attempting to evict falls within these exceptions, the eviction process changes entirely.  It is important to be aware of the familial exception to evictions before an action is commenced to avoid unnecessary delays and costs.  As always, the best way to avoid these pitfalls is to consult with an attorney before proceeding.
