The Law Offices of Sergey Davydov protect tenants’ rights in NYC. We represent tenants who face eviction and other infringements of tenants’ rights.
We represent tenants in housing court as well as administrative agency proceedings before the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR), and New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), New York City Loft Board (NYCLB), and the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development agency (HUD).
It is important that you have an experienced landlord-tenant attorney to represent your interests in court or administrative agency proceedings. Your landlord will have an attorney representing its interests and so should you.
If you have received a petition the petition needs to be answered timely or a judgment and warrant of eviction will be issued on default. If a warrant of eviction has already been issued on default then you need to act fast and take out an order to show cause to vacate your default and restore the case to the calendar before a city marshal evicts you.
There are many defenses to a landlord-tenant action that can be interposed to save your tenancy depending on the facts of the case. The law provides many eviction protections that you may not be aware of. We can help you save your home and assert your rights.
We will ensure that your landlord is not increasing your rent unlawfully, that proper maintenance in the building is done, and that safety and habitability regulations are observed.
