What Landlords Must Know Prior To Filing For Eviction

By: Undisputed Legal/Eviction Service Department

A tenant with a lease is protected from eviction during the lease period so long as the tenant does not violate any substantial provision of the lease or any local housing laws or codes. For both regulated and unreg- ulated apartments, landlords must give formal notice of their intention to obtain legal possession of the apartment.

Unless the tenant vacates the premises by a specified date, the landlord may commence eviction proceedings through: (a) a summary non-pay- ment court proceeding to evict a tenant who fails to pay the agreed rent when due and to recover outstanding rent; or (b) a summary holdover proceeding for eviction if a tenant significantly violates a substantial obligation under the lease (such as using the premises for illegal pur- poses, or committing or permitting a nuisance) or stays beyond the lease term without permission (Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law (RPAPL § 711).
