Chronic Nonpayment

New York Landlord Attorney Provides Counsel

If any of your tenants have a history of nonpayment over a short period of time, then you may be able to evict them despite the fact that they paid their judgment amount after a nonpayment proceeding. While many tenants pay their rent and cause no further problems, others will fail to pay month after month. Repeated nonpayment can get very expensive for you as you begin the litigation process time and time again. Fortunately, there is a solution. You may be able to evict your tenant based on a chronic nonpayment cause of action under a holdover proceeding, which will terminate their tenancy as a breach of contact.

To begin this process, call a NYC landlord lawyer from The Law Office of Tamara I. Jordan P.L.L.C. In most cases, the court will only evict tenants that have gone through nonpayment proceedings three or four times within a year. Our firm can help you navigate the process and aggressively litigate on your behalf. We are 100% client-driven and do whatever it takes to help you achieve your goals.

How to File a Chronic Nonpayment Case in New York

As you probably know, you need to provide the tenant with a rent demand three days before beginning the litigation process. Once the rent demand is served, you can bring a nonpayment case to housing court. Once this has happened multiple times with one tenant, you can begin to build your chronic nonpayment case.

To win your case, you must have impeccable documentation of your rent demands and previous nonpayment cases. In addition, you cannot have any outstanding issues with your tenant, such as repairs. If there are such issues, the tenant may be able to claim that they were not paying rent based on fault with your service.

The courts may order a probationary period in which the tenant will have time to build a good payment record. This may be beneficial for you as it could avoid a lengthy and expensive trial. To find out what is in your best interest, get counsel from an experience landlord attorney in New York City.
