An Attorney friend recently advised one of my homeowner clients who owns a 3 Family home. I remember the some of the conversation:

1. Landlord must FIRST give a 30 day written notice to vacate hand-delivered to the tenant. The thirty days begins the first day of the NEXT month after delivery.

2. If the tenant does not vacate then the landlord must go to court. For that part of the process, I have no knowledge and I'd recommend consulting with an Attorney who specializes in Landlord & Tenant issues.

I have heard also that the clerks at Landlord & Tenant Court are helpful in explaining the process to a tenant in danger of being evicted.

You will and are required by law to get several written notices before the landlord/tenant court hearing. 311 provides resources on getting free legal and other assistance. Good luck!

usual first step is to send a letter. If no response then a tenant will be served to appear in landlord/tenant court for an eviction proceeding
