Often, Suffolk and Nassau County landlords who call us looking to evict their tenant want to know what the fastest way possible to evict their tenant is. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as an express or expedited eviction. You can’t pay extra to evict your tenant sooner. The timeframe to evict your tenant is established by the laws of the State of New York, and by the speed at which the courts in Nassau and Suffolk County function. If we are retained as your eviction lawyers, we typically begin the eviction process within 24 to 48 hours after being retained, which means we will have your tenant evicted within the fastest timeframe allowable by law.

Sometimes lawyers with little experience in landlord tenant law may advise landlords that they can evict their tenants faster. But whether inexperienced or just unknowledgeable, anyone who claims to be able to expedite an eviction proceeding is not being truthful. Beware of scam artists such as “paralegals” illegally offering evictions who promise services that do not exist. All evictions must go through the same process at the same timeframe in Nassau and Suffolk County.
