Landlord Law

Long Island Landlord Attorney

Landlord law is concerned with the rental of residential and commercial property. These proceedings are highly technical and require the timely and accurate filing of all required documents. With experience litigating landlord matters in Nassau County, Suffolk County, and New York since 1982, Robert H. Solomon, PC can help you navigate the ins and outs of the landlord-tenant relationship.

If you are a landlord, our law office can provide dedicated counsel and representation that protects your rights and advances your best interests. Because we understand how costly the litigation process can become, we exhaust all options before taking your case to court. Rest assured, however, that our attorney will not hesitate to fight for your rights in the courtroom if that is what you need.

What Is a Lease?

A lease is an agreement between the landlord and tenant, and it outlines how long the tenant may occupy the space, the amount they will be paying for rent, how they will be paying, and other rights and responsibilities of both parties. The lease (and someone's understanding of the lease) is what will largely determine the potential of a future dispute. To prevent future conflicts that cost you both money and time, we can help you understand every element of this document before you sign.

How Long Does it Take to Evict a Tenant in Suffolk County & Nassau County?

The length of time it takes to evict a tenant in Suffolk County or Nassau County, New York, depends on several factors, including the type of eviction proceeding and the venue the proceeding is filed in.

In Nassau County, it could take 45 days or more from the date the action is commenced. In Western Suffolk County, it generally takes about 30 days.

In Eastern Suffolk, it could take less than 30 days.

The general rule is that the closer to New York City, the longer the action takes. And generally, hold-over proceedings take longer than non-payment proceedings, because predicate notices typically must be served on the tenants before the action can be commenced.
