The Eviction Process
When a tenant breaches the terms of a lease agreement, usually by failing to pay rent or residing in the dwelling after the lease expired, Tully Rinckey PLLC’s eviction lawyers in Albany, N.Y. can help landlords promptly remove them from the premises. In New York, landlords must go through a special proceeding to evict a tenant. Our attorneys will aggressively represent landlords through the eviction process described below.
The Eviction Process in Upstate New York
Notice to the tenant
New York’s Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law requires upstate landlords to provide tenants with written notices of at least 30 days of the termination of tenancies that are at will or by sufferance or month-to-month.
Our eviction attorneys in Albany, N.Y. can prepare termination notices or notices demanding payment of rent.
Filing a lawsuit
Tully Rinckey PLLC’s eviction attorneys in Albany, N.Y. can prepare eviction petitions that detail the landlord’s and tenant’s interests in the premises, the reasons for removal, facts of the case, and relief sought.
After a notice of petition is served to the tenant, he or she has a short period to respond to it (e.g. five days after service in non-payment proceedings). If the tenant fails to respond to the complaint within this window, the judge will deliver a judgment favoring the landlord. If the tenant does promptly file an answer, the case will go to trial. Our attorneys can collect evidence justifying an eviction and present it at trial.
Tully Rinckey PLLC’s eviction lawyers can help landlords recover any rent owed and out and attorney fees.
Enforcement of the eviction order
The court will issue a warrant directing the county sheriff or a constable or marshal to remove the tenant from the premises. The officer will give the tenant 72 hours written notice to leave voluntarily or be dispossessed.
Our eviction attorneys in Albany, N.Y. can help landlords recover any money owed by the tenant relating to his or her use of the premises from when the special proceeding commenced to when the court issued the warrant.
