Meet an Empire State Treatise: “Residential Landlord-Tenant Law in New York”

Particularly during this time of COVID, New York tenants are concerned about ramifications of non-payment of rent and possible eviction from their homes. The 2020-2021 edition of this treatise by NYLS Professor Andrew Scherer, with contributions from a few New York City Housing Court judges, includes chapters about the Tenant Safe Harbor Act, which permanently bars landlords from obtaining possessory judgments for a tenant’s failure to pay rent during this time of emergency. It also includes chapters about public housing, rent control and housing courts. You can find this treatise in the Library Catalog with a Westlaw link to the current edition.
