Commercial Landlord Holdover & Nonpayment Proceedings

Representing Commercial Landlords And Real Estate Management Companies In Litigation

Attorney Gary Wachtel provides comprehensive services to commercial landlords and real estate management companies in New York. His broad range of services in landlord and tenant litigation includes such services as lease, contract and statutory rights enforcement, summary holdover proceedings, summary nonpayment proceedings in New York Civil Court and defense of Yellowstone Injunctions in New York Supreme Court.

In this practice, Mr. Wachtel helps commercial landlords and real estate management companies by countering tenant defenses and working toward a final judgment of possession and money judgment or settlement as expeditiously as possible. He understands that significant amounts of money are at stake, and every week or month that goes by, a landlord could lose tens of thousands of dollars in rent.

Landlord and tenant law in New York State is driven by both legislation and case law, with the law constantly evolving into complicated rules and procedures that often invoke other, interrelated areas of law. Litigation in this field is complex, and the administrative procedures, filing limitations, evidentiary requirements and other procedural demands can be abstract without the skilled guidance of a practiced lawyer whose practice emphasizes landlord and tenant law.

Mr. Wachtel understands the need for the client to know what is going on every step of the way. Because of the personalized attention Mr. Wachtel gives each case, he knows exactly what stage the case is at and can inform the client with a telephone call.

NY Lawyer for Commercial Landlord Summary Nonpayment Proceedings

A summary nonpayment proceeding is a civil court proceeding initiated by the commercial landlord or real estate management company when the tenant has refused to pay rent.

New York Commercial Landlord Summary Holdover Proceedings Attorney

A summary holdover proceeding is a civil court proceeding initiated by the commercial landlord or real estate management company when:

  1. A commercial tenant has held over the expiration of his lease, or
     
  2. The landlord has prematurely terminated the tenancy because of a breach or violation of the lease. Examples of breaches or violations of the lease include the tenant illegally subletting or assigning the lease, failing to maintain insurance, committing a nuisance. The lease may also have a provision that allows the landlord to prematurely terminate the lease if it intends to demolish the building or gut-renovate the building.
