Tenant Lease Security

By | April 23, 2012

Tenant lease security is a form of legal warrant issued by the landlord to his tenants guaranteeing the habitability of the house leased. The document protects the tenant’s rights to rent a safe and livable residence that has been well maintained and may not be prone to accidents. It is supposed to be in accordance with the New York State Law that states that the landlords need to lease only safe habitable housing for their tenants.
