Required Housing Court Legal Documents FAQs

What Legal Documents Are Required to Proceed to Start a Housing Court Case?

A predicate demand or notice is necessary for a landlord to start most landlord tenant cases. The law requires a landlord to serve a tenant with a Demand or Notice prior to filing a case in court. The landlord's case may likely be dismissed without a proper predicate Demand or Notice.  

What is a Petition?

A petition in special or summary landlord tenant proceeding is a legal paper like a complaint filed in court and delivered to the tenants and occupants stating what the landlord requests from the court and the tenants and occupants.
