The UCC and the RPAPL

In New York State, commercial eviction proceedings are governed by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and the Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law (RPAPL). As a tenant, your rights, as well as the rights of your landlord, are laid out in these laws. These laws also provide instructions and guidelines for eviction proceedings. If you are facing eviction as a commercial tenant, it is paramount that you hire a commercial eviction lawyer with an in-depth knowledge of these laws who can fight for the best outcome possible on your behalf.

Potential Defenses Against Eviction

Fortunately, depending on the circumstances of your case, there are several potential defenses our legal team may use to help you stay where you are. Some of those defenses are as follows:

  • Proof that the landlord has not provided you adequate notice.
  • Proof that the landlord has failed to adequately maintain the premises.
  • Proof that the landlord is evicting you on the basis of discrimination due to a protected characteristic. You are protected from discrimination in this context, among others, under the New York State Human Rights Law.
  • Evidence that the landlord has breached the terms of your lease agreement.
