Landlord
  • My tenant has stopped paying rent, can I evict them?
  • How long do I wait before I can file for an eviction?
  • What Court do I file for an eviction?
  • I don’t have a lease, can I just tell my tenants to get out?
  • What can I do if one tenant is driving out my other tenants?
  • What can I do if the damage in the apartment exceeded the security deposit?
  • What can I do if the tenant is subletting rooms without my permission?
  • What can I do if the tenants are violating building codes?
  • How do I get my back rent back if I evict the tenant?
  • What needs to be in a lease to protect my interests?
  • What can I do if I want to sell the property but my tenants have a valid lease?

Landlord’s before entering into a valid eviction process must understand the true nature of the tenancy of the renter. If the durational term of a valid lease has expired but the tenant has remained in occupancy with the permission of the Landlord, he is often times referred to as a “Holdover” tenant. The procedures needed to evict this tenant for non- payment of rent differ greatly to the eviction process of a party who lease has not expired.

These and hundreds of more questions come up each and every day in landlord tenant disputes. The Law offices of ANDREW J GILBRIDE, ESQ. will help you navigate the confusing world of Landlord Tenant Court and Southampton Justice Court.

★★★★★
As first time home buyers, my husband and I were very stressed out, especially running into bumps in the road trying to obtain a mortgage within the contract time. Andy put our minds at ease throughout the whole process and was extremely knowledgeable. I have since referred a number of friends and family to Andy for all kinds of matters including residential Home Sales, Divorces and Family Court Matters. They, as us, have all been very pleased with his services. We highly recommend. Melissa and Thomas Q.
