  • Description
    Yellowstone Injunctions, a tenant’s only recourse in the event of a landlord who serves him with notice of lease termination for alleged default, is a little understood area of the tenant/landlord negotiations. Used for both commercial and residential leases in New York, the Yellowstone Injunction maintains the status quo of the lease parties until a resolution is found or the issue is adjudicated. In general, a tenant has only 5-10 days between receipt of a notice of lease termination during which time he must either cure the default causing the termination, making an attorney’s knowledge and understanding of the Yellowstone Injunction, which effectively puts the proceedings on hold, absolutely imperative. This CLE course will explain Yellowstone Injunctions in their entirety and explain how to compel the courts to issue an injunction, the injunction process and mechanisms for defending against them.
