Commercial Landlord and Tenant Cases


In general, the procedure for commercial landlord and tenant cases is the same as for residential landlord and tenant cases. For purposes of procedure, go to the Legal and Procedural menu of the Housing Court website.

Summary proceedings brought in commercial cases are returnable in the Part 52 courtroom. The commercial landlord and tenant cases are presided over by the Civil Court Judges. One judge is assigned as the up-front judge to handle any applications during the call of the calendar and to handle the commercial motions. Motions must be decided within 30 days. Cases that are trial ready are sent out to one of the judges assigned to sit as back-up judges.

The following is a list of locations and phone listings for filing commercial landlord and tenant cases:
