Renting an apartment or house in New York can be a daunting task. There are numerous laws and regulations that govern the rental process that must be followed. In this blog post, we will discuss the basics of the rental laws in New York, as well as provide resources for further information.

Security Deposits

When renting a property in New York, tenants are typically required to pay a security deposit. This deposit is held by the landlord and is intended to cover any potential damages that may arise during the tenancy. The amount of the security deposit is dependent on the terms of the lease agreement, but it cannot exceed the equivalent of one-month’s rent.

Rent Increases

In New York, landlords must provide tenants with written notice of any proposed rent increase at least 30 days in advance. Rent increases are subject to certain restrictions, and cannot be higher than the amount stated in the lease agreement.


In New York, there are certain grounds for eviction, such as nonpayment of rent, that must be met before a landlord can proceed with the eviction process. The landlord must provide the tenant with written notice of the eviction and the tenant must be given an opportunity to contest the eviction.



Renting a property in New York is a complex process that requires knowledge of the laws and regulations that govern the process. We hope this blog post has provided a basic overview of the rental laws in New York, as well as useful resources for further information.
