The New York State Real Property Law (RPL) covers the spectrum of
Real Property issues, including the relationship between Landlord

Real Property Actions and Proceedings
Law (RPAPL) which details the nature of court proceedings
that invariably arise from contested real estate issues.
Of prime concern to tenants is Article 7 which
covers the Landlord-Tenant relationshhip. Also of concern are Articles 12-A and 12-C
which cover Real Estate Brokers and Apartment Information Vendors.
