Understanding Residential and Commercial Leasing in Nassau County, Suffolk County, and New York City, NY

Establishing a written lease agreement is crucial to preventing most landlord/tenant disputes in New York. Our real estate attorneys can help you create both residential and commercial lease agreements with clear instructions that allow each party to understand their respective duties and obligations. Our New York law firm can help you draft a customized New York leasing agreement that meets your needs, gets the most out of renting your property, and avoids any real estate disputes in the future.

Many US households are renter-occupied, and you need to be aware of potential risks and how to avoid them. Your lease or rental agreement must include accurate information regarding monthly rent, square footage, length of the lease, termination guidelines, grounds for eviction, and more. You want to specify your occupancy limit, like how many adults, children, or pets are allowed, and whether there are any additional deposits or fees. Your lease includes tenant names, landlord contact information, and details regarding how lease payments are made. Many of the things required in your lease are also required by state and local laws.

If property is rented for business purposes, the lease agreement must define how the property is being used and who is responsible for maintenance. There may be special clauses regarding early termination of the lease, including subletting or appointing a new tenant. Again, many aspects of your lease must follow government regulations.

We help you:

  • Draft lease agreements
  • Draft lease renewals
  • Review lease agreements
  • Amend and terminate agreements
  • Avoid or resolve landlord/tenant disputes
  • Negotiate contingency or special clauses
