Renting property in New York City can be a long and challenging process. As a tenant of a rented property, you know that you still have rights even though you do not own the property. However, you may be unaware of what those rights entail. If you believe that your safety is at risk or you suffered physical harm because of the action or inaction of your landlord, you may have the right to seek legal recourse.
Tenants would be wise to fully understand to what degree their safety is the responsibility of their landlord. You should not have to live in unnecessarily dangerous conditions or suffer harm from threats or risks that were not your fault. If you believe you have a case against your landlord, you have no time to lose in seeking the full protection of your rights.
