Bronx landlord may head to jail for failing to maintain building

Many New York residents rent their living spaces instead of buying them. When you sign a lease, you agree to the terms that your landlord has set. Your landlord, however, is responsible for adhering to New York laws regarding building maintenance and safety. When a landlord allows an inhabited building to fall into disrepair, he or she can be held accountable by both the city and the tenants.
