This handy compact volume contains an unprecedented range of material ideal for attorneys, property managers, landlords, and renters’ associations! The general statutory scheme of landlord tenant law is presented in a narrative manner, organized by section. History notes and case law annotations enrich the material to create a full picture of the law. Many common issues, such as non-payment proceedings, pet cases, and eviction are covered in detail, often from both the landlord’s and the tenant’s viewpoint. Following the authored narration, a selection of full-text statutes are included for reference.

In addition to statutes, a significant collection of sample forms are included as guidance – forms for residential leases, commercial leases, notices to tenants and forms for many court proceedings are included. Finally, selections from Uniform rules (for NYC civil courts, courts outside the city, and district courts) are included, as is the full text of Park West Management Corp. v. Mitchell, regarding the issue of damages in the case of a breach of an implied warranty of habitability.
