Are You Covered by Good Cause Eviction? (Part 2 of the Good Cause Eviction Series)

Apr 28, 2024

In Episode 26 we continue discussing the historic new Good Cause Eviction Law. The New York State Legislature passed Good Cause Eviction on April 20, 2024. This is the most significant change in landlord-tenant law that I have seen in the 30 years that I have been a landlord-tenant litigator in New York City.

There are two major aspects to every regulatory law. First, you need to know what the law does – what does it prevent your landlord from doing to you, what does it require the landlord to do for you, what protections is the law giving you, what restrictions does the law put upon you? We did that in the last episode, Episode 25. You also need to know if the Good Cause Eviction Law applies to you; and if so, why? If not, why not? Are you sure Good Cause Eviction does not cover you? That is what we are doing in today’s Episode 26. Is your apartment protected?! Every New Yorker needs to know this stuff.
