Our Bronx Eviction Attorney on Non-Payment Disputes

 Bronx eviction attorney  gavelIt is frustrating and economically problematic for a landlord when a tenant has stopped paying rent or is always behind. Nonetheless, the landlord must take caution in how they proceed. A Bronx eviction attorney can explain a tenant cannot be evicted unless proper procedure is meticulously followed, and the landlord cannot do anything that may be construed as harassing the tenant.

Rent Demand

The first step a landlord must take is to make a written demand for the past due amount and specifically warn the tenant that they will be evicted if they fail to pay. So that there can be no dispute as to actual receipt of the demand, the landlord should have the notice served on the tenant. This notice must be served before the landlord can file a Court Petition for Eviction. If there is a lease, make sure you bring it with you during your free consultation.

Petition

If the tenant does not pay what is owed during the Notice period, the landlord has the right to file a petition against the tenant in the civil court for the jurisdiction where the property is located.

Court Appearance

The attorney for Landlord must appear at the appointed time and bring all relevant information including the terms of the lease, a zero balance breakdown showing the amount owed and copies of the notice given as well as proof of service. The case will either be settled or a trial date given.
