Eviction Attorney NYC Helps with Delinquent Tenants

Eviction Attorney NYC Helps with Delinquent Tenants

Close of gavel in courtroom Eviction Attorney NYC

Our Bronx and Mount Vernon eviction attorney is often questioned on how to handle tenants who are chronically late with rent or who simply refuse to pay. Even so, the landlord must follow specific procedures before he or she can actually evict a tenant. If your actions are viewed as harassing, you could face further legal problems or even lose a lawsuit.

Written Demand for Rent

First, your attorney will need to demand the delinquent rent in writing and advise the tenant that failure to pay will result in an eviction. Our attorney has the licensed process server to have the tenant served with notice in the manner provided by law. You will need to go through this step before you file the next document, a Court Petition for Non Payment. Please email to speak to our eviction attorney for help with the specific wording of these documents.

Petition Against the Tenant

The tenant has a certain amount of time to pay during this period. If he or she fails to comply, you can file a Petition and Notice of Petition against him or her in civil court.   This is called a Non Payment Petition.

Court Date

Your eviction attorney will then need to appear in court as scheduled and will attempt to enter into a Stipulation of Settlement which will provide for the payment of arrears and the listing of any necessary repairs

If there will need to be a Trial you will appear with all related documents. These include:

  • A copy of the lease
  • A statement of how much the tenant owes you called zero balance breakdown
  • Certified copy of the Deed
  • Certified copy of Multiple Dwelling Registration in effect (if 3,4 or 5 family dwelling)

Eviction laws are highly technical, and you should not risk handling one by yourself. Our Bronx and Mount Vernon eviction lawyers can help you with this difficult process so that it is done correctly.
