Does a tenant have a legal defense to eviction?

Amherst rental property owners already know that each party to a lease agreement has certain rights. Even so, some landlords may believe that once they initiate eviction proceedings, they are guaranteed to win. The truth is that may not always be the case. Tenants do have some defenses that could change the outcome.

Evictions can only occur for legally valid reasons

Owning a rental property can provide an Amherst property owner with an abundant passive income stream. However, that also means dealing with tenants and those relationships do not always turn out as intended. Evictions happen for a variety of reasons, but they must fall within the law.

Evicting tenants requires more than telling them to leave

When you own property, you generally think that you have the right to say who can and cannot be on it. That may be true in some instances, but if you rent space to either residential or commercial tenants, you lose the right to simply tell someone to leave under New York law. Rental agreements make evicting tenants a legal process that you must follow in order to successfully evict someone from your property.

Whether your arrest was minor or life-changing, never forget that you have
options. Your rights are important. Take advantage of your rights now.
