Effective New York Landlord-Tenant Attorneys Represent Tenants

Solving legal issues for those living in apartments

Using our real estate experience representing both  landlords and tenants, at Outerbridge Law P.C., we create solutions for tenants. We successfully bring tenants comfort that they are living in a stable, well-maintained home that abides by the warranty of habitability. Outerbridge Law, P.C. commits its substantial knowledge about real estate, contracts and property rights to helping New York clients:

  • Review rental leases
  • Resolve landlord-tenant disputes
  • Successfully defend against unjust evictions
  • Demand return of security deposits that have been unfairly held
  • Uphold tenants’ rights against discrimination

We are dedicated to fighting for the rights of renters throughout New York.

Reviewing leases for your protection

Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all rental terms. Our firm can discuss the particulars of a property, or unit and its occupancy and ensure that your lease covers all aspects of your rental agreement.   We also review the history of the tenancies to ensure that tenants are not being denied rent stabilization rights. We want you to feel confident that your landlord is absolutely in compliance with New York law including the Rent Stabilization Code and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.

Protecting tenants’ rights to security deposits

Recent amendments to New York law specify the usage, retention and return of security deposits. If your landlord fails to follow these strict regulations, Outerbridge Law P.C. can help you to collect what is due to you.  We first pursue the most cost-effective route of demanding payment from your landlord. 

Resolving an eviction crisis

Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, the firm helps mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, our firm will protect your right to remain in your home.
