Does your lease have a provision that provides that you pay the landlord's attorneys' fees? If so, Section 234 of the Real Property Law allows a tenant to collect his/her attorneys' fees.

However, Section 234 will probably apply only in the successful defense of a summary proceeding in housing court.
