A new law came into effect earlier this year that drastically changed the laws regarding landlords and tenants in New York State. Landlords are now required to provide tenants with receipts when rent is paid in any form of payment other than paper checks. Also under the new law, eviction notices have been changed from 3 day notices to 14 days. There are also changes to how security deposits must be handled.
Michael Perehinec of Coughlin & Gerhardt joined Dave and Lew on the WEBO Morning show to discuss these changes for landlords and tenants. You can listen to the entire interview here:
