Illegal Lockouts

In New York City, it is illegal to use "self-help" to evict a tenant.

A tenant may only be evicted by a City Marshal or a Sheriff pursuant to a court order.
If you have been removed from your apartment by anyone other than a City Marshal with a valid warrant of eviction, or if your tenant is accusing you of this, we can help you.

Illegal lockout proceedings are more dangerous than most housing cases, as landlords can be fined triple the tenant's damages if there is malicious intent.
