Eviction Consumer Bankruptcy

Learn More

Bankruptcy can make it possible for New York tenants to avoid eviction or to eliminate a back rent balance.


When you’re in serious debt, chances are that you might be behind on the rent. It’s at this point – when scared of being put out of his/her apartment – that a person can start to get very frightened and wonder whether there is anything they can do.

Ideally, you want to file for bankruptcy before your landlord obtains a judgment of possession against you, as a bankruptcy filing results in the imposition of an automatic stay, which prohibits creditors from attempting to collect from you. Regardless of whether the landlord has a judgment against you or not, if you wish to stay in the apartment, you do need to eventually pay the back rent – we can help you make a payment arrangement that will allow this. If you are not seeking to remain in the residence and would like to completely eliminate the back rent debt, it is possible through Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Don’t wait another day to give us a call if your debt includes back rent. The sooner you do, the more options you might have. We are experienced bankruptcy attorneys and will advise you as to the best way to go given your specific situation.
