suffolk evictions

Generally, when someone refers to a “tenant eviction notice,” they are referring to a predicate notice, sometimes required by law to be served on the tenant in a particular manner before the court will allow you to commence an eviction proceeding. This type of notice requirement mandates that the landlord serve the tenant with notice to either pay the rent or vacate the premises within 14 days; or that their tenancy is terminated as of a certain date. The content of such notices is strictly governed by law and they must be served in a very particular manner within a very particular time frame, or your petition will be dismissed by the court. Whether you are required to serve one of these notices depends on several factors, such as the type of eviction proceeding you want to bring. If you are unsure whether a predicate notice is required to evict your tenant, give us a call and ask us. We will be happy to help.
