When tenant holdovers, in other words refuses to leave after their monthly tenancy expires, or violates other lease provisions, landlords can take corrective actions up to and including an eviction. This is effectuated pursuant to a New York City housing court order known as a judgment of possession and insurance of a warrant of eviction.
The Summary Eviction Holdover process generally involves serving your tenant a termination notice followed by summoning your tenant to court with notice of petition and petition with an assigned court date and time, appearing in court, getting a court order issuing a judgment of possession, retaining a city marshal to obtain an issuance of a warrant and to serve a notice of eviction. But landlord tenant law, like so many other areas of law, demands a meticulous attention to detail to ensure there are no procedural missteps.
