What is the name of your state? New York State
I have a situation, as I came into posession of a legal 2 family house with the tenant residing in a studio aprtment. I do not have the keys to the apartment, as the previous owner of the house has misplaced them and did not provide me with a copy.
I have repetedly asked the tenant for the copy of the keys, as I told her I would need to have a copy for emergency situation in case of a fire or a flood I would need to acess the premises.
The tenant has not provided the keys to me. In fact, she changed the locks on the door
I have told the tenant that I would have no choice but to change the locks and that provide her with the key and have a key for myself as well.
What is my recourse?
