Resolving an eviction crisis
Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, Glasser & McGuire helps mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, Glasser & McGuire aggressively pursues your rights to protect your property and your business. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, Glasser & McGuire protects your right to remain in your home.
Commercial landlord/tenant matters
The law firm of Glasser & McGuire also represents commercial landlords and tenants. For landlords, we provide aggressive representation to assist you obtaining rent payments from non-paying tenants as well as expeditiously commencing holdover proceedings against tenants who breach their lease or holdover past lease expiration. If you are a tenant who feels as though you’ve been harassed by your landlord or should you need assistance in defending a non-payment or holdover proceeding we can provide exceptional service to help you maintain your business during your time of need. We will work hard to help you stay in business or to negotiate a settlement that is right for you!
Drafting solid leases for property owners
Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all rental terms. Attorneys Jack Glasser and Patrick T. McGuire discuss the particulars of your property and its occupancy and construct clear, detailed leases that cover all aspects of your rental agreement. When you present a lease to a prospective tenant, you will feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with New York law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.
Protecting tenants’ rights to security deposits
New York law specifies the usage, retention and return of security deposits. If your landlord fails to follow these strict regulations, Glasser & McGuire can help you to collect what is due to you. We first pursue the most cost-effective route of demanding payment from your landlord. If necessary, Glasser & McGuire assertively defends your rights in court.
