Eviction Rules are NOT the same everywhere in NY

On June 22, 2011, in Landlord-Tenant, by John A. Weber IV, ESQ.

Eviction Rules Fluctuate

Eviction rules fluctuate between the counties of New York State.  There has been an increasingly high volume of calls from landlords who live in one county but have rental properties in another county.  This causes issues where the landlord has one understanding of the eviction procedure for where he lives, but that procedure differs significantly from the procedure in the county in which their rental property is located.  These differences run along a wide variety of topics including whether or not the landlord should be present as the sheriff or marshal executes a warrant of eviction.  Not knowing the rules for the county in which you are planning on litigating in, can lead to penalties that range from fines to jail time.  It is always advisable to speak with an attorney before commencing legal action.  As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns involving evictions in your county at (516) 858-2620!
