Unfortunately, my lease does have a provision that I pay the LL's attorney fees. But, is the lease actually valid if he never provided me with the rental history and has been overcharging me as well?
: Does your lease have a provision that provides that you pay the landlord's attorneys' fees? If so, Section 234 of the Real Property Law allows a tenant to collect his/her attorneys' fees.
: However, Section 234 will probably apply only in the successful defense of a summary proceeding in housing court.
