How to evict a tenant in Port Jefferson, New York (NY) 11777
We’ve seen many tenant eviction scenarios, but they usually boil down to two general categories: (1) you want to evict the tenant but would reinstate them if certain conditions were met, or you want to evict the tenant with no chance of them remaining on the property. These are some of the core questions a Witkon Law landlord tenant attorney would ask you during a consultation.
In our opinion, the first step to evicting a tenant is to contact a lawyer.
So you’re evicting a tenant in Port Jefferson, NY and want to make sure you’re following the rules
Removing an individual from their home is no small matter. If they have stopped paying you, chances are they have fallen on hard times or there is some sort of stressor in their life causing this to happen. For these reasons, evicting a tenant can often be contentious. You want to make sure you’re doing it by the books. Do you have a lease agreement? A rental agreement? Have you made any verbal or written promises? How past due is the nonpayment? Have you demanded payment of the late rents? If so, how did you do it: did you demand the tenant pay rent via phone, email, text, or verbally in person? How long did you give them? Have you already posted an eviction notice?
Laws, procedures, and best practices for evicting a tenant vary to a significant degree depending on where the property is located. The county, and even the town can affect the best practices and legal requirements for evicting a tenant.
