Whether you are a large management company or a small property owner, the only way to evict a residential or commercial tenant in the event of a breach is through a summary proceeding in housing court. Although summary proceedings were intended to be generally shorter, simpler, and quicker than the ordinary steps in a suit, that is not the case when it comes to landlord-tenant litigation in New York.
The process of commencing and litigating an eviction action in New York is highly technical and requires a seasoned landlord-tenant attorney familiar with New York’s ever-changing Real Property Law. Depending on what type of action is commenced a proper predicate notice needs to be served on the tenants before filing a petition in court. Failure to serve a proper predicate notice will ultimately result in the dismissal of your case many months down the line costing you time, money, and aggravation. The Law Offices of Sergey Davydov., regularly commences and litigates landlord-tenant actions in Manhattan, Queens, Bronx, and Brooklyn from inception through trial.
The very first step in commencing an action is figuring out what type of case is proper. During our initial consultation, we gather all the facts to determine the proper course of action. Generally, depending on the facts, landlords can bring either a nonpayment proceeding or holdover proceeding. A non-payment action is commenced if there is a written lease that has not expired and the tenant is behind in his rental obligations.
A holdover case is commenced by a landlord to evict a tenant for reasons other than the tenant’s failure to pay rent. There are numerous grounds for a holdover case for both residential and commercial settings. These types of cases seek possession of the subject premise irrespective if the tenant is current on the rent.
