Daniel A. Singer
Daniel A. Singer is an attorney who provides counseling in law to both landlords and tenants in all five boroughs of New York City. One of the most common disputes that arises between landlords and tenants involves the payment of rent. Mr. Singer advises landlords with respect to the legal remedies available for the collection of unpaid rent. This often means serving a rent demand upon the tenant, followed by the commencement of a nonpayment proceeding in court. Mr. Singer employs proven strategies to maximize the recovery of rent from the tenant, or alternatively, when recovery is not possible, to persuade the court to evict the tenant in a timely manner.
When representing tenants, Mr. Singer can advise on defenses which can be used with respect to the nonpayment of rent. These may include, among others, improper service of court papers, the failure of the landlord to make necessary repairs to the premises, and the landlord’s demand for an illegal amount of rent. Often, a tenant merely requires more time to pay the rent.
Daniel A. Singer has a proven track record of negotiating payment plans on behalf of tenants which allow the tenants to remain on the premises while paying the rent in accordance with an affordable schedule.
