Evictions in NYS may only be made if the landlord can present an appropriate legal reason for doing so. They must also provide the correct amount of days’ notice to their tenant, depending on the basis that they have for the eviction.
As a result, there are a number of different types of New York Notices to Quit that can be used in these circumstances. Not using the correct legal document, in this case, can lead to delays or even legal dismissal of the eviction, so it is important to choose the right one.
14-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment)
In most cases, landlords in New York will issue tenants with a 14-Day Notice to Quit. These eviction notices give the tenant 2 weeks to pay rent or quit. If the tenant does not pay the rent owed within this time or leave the property as instructed, the landlord will be able to pursue the case through the courts.
30-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Compliant)
If the tenant commits a lease violation the landlord can issue a 30-Day Notice to Quit. This will give the resident 30 days to leave the property or to cure the problem that the landlord has raised (if allowed).
This can be conditional or unconditional depending on the severity of the infraction. In the case of an incurable notice, the tenant will have no chance to cure or fix the violation. If they refuse to comply within the time given, the landlord will then be able to file a court case against them.
30-Day Notice to Quit (Month-to-Month)
30 Day-Notice to Quit documents are used to evict month-to-month tenants or those who are without a fixed lease without any given cause. This allows the landlord to inform the tenant that they must vacate the property within 30 days or face a legal challenge.
