In New York, landlords must serve you with a 14-Day Notice to Quit, also known as a “Rent Demand” or “Demand for Rent,” prior to filing an eviction case. If the landlord fails to serve you with this document, you may be able to have the eviction case dismissed. The eviction process is designed to give tenants sufficient notice, prior to a landlord filing an eviction case. When the landlord fails to follow the rules, the landlord’s case is subject to dismissal. If you are facing eviction contact the Queens Eviction Lawyers to fight eviction. You may have legal defenses that prevent a landlord from evicting you or collecting back rent from you.
