As of June 14, 2019; new legislation called the Tenant Protection Act has been enacted drastically changing the rules and procedures required for evictions. 
Further, most Tenants are entitled to free attorneys provided by the court; YOU should have one too! 

As of April 20, 2024 Good Cause Eviction was enacted.  This law affects free market units however there are numerous "exemptions"; meaning if you qualified as an exemption then Good Cause Eviction does not apply to your unit.  

Small landlords (see below), condos, coops, sublandlords and new buildings with CO in 2009 or more recently are a few of the major exemptions. 

A small landlord is defined as an Owner who owns 10 or less units in New York State not including their primary residence. 
Call now to determine if you qualify under one of the exemptions.

There are 2 main types of Evictions:  

Non-payment Proceeding: 
this is an eviction case when a Tenant does not pay rent and currently has a lease in effect. 
This type of proceeding requires a 5 day late payment notice and a 14 day (or more) rent demand which must be served pursuant to the statute.
Holdover Proceeding: 
there are a few different types of holdover proceedings including lease termination, expired lease, month to month tenant, squatter and/or licensee in which the main goal is to obtain possession. 
The most common holdover is when a Tenant does not have a lease in effect and/or the lease has expired; at this point by law the Tenant is now a month to month Tenant and in order to gain legal possession the Landlord must provide a termination notice.    
This type of proceeding requires a  termination notice which depending on length of occupancy requires a 30 day, or a 60 day, or a 90 day notice of termination which must be served upon all occupants.  

This above law still applies to Owners who qualify for an exemption under good cause eviction, example: small landlords; however if your unit is covered by good cause eviction then you cannot proceed with this type of holdover.
