New York Property and Real Estate Laws
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
New York, home to a teeming metropolis of 8 million people, has specific laws when it comes to landlords and tenants, real estate and property. For instance, a landlord in New York doesn’t have a set deadline as to when to return a renter’s security deposit. Most states require this to be done in 14 or 30 days. No such requirement in the Empire State. Instead, a landlord must return the tenant's security deposit within “a reasonable time” after the tenant has surrendered the rental.
