There can be reasons why a landlord may decide not to return the security deposit.

Five things landlords must know about evictions in Queens NY

Have valid reasons for eviction 

It is unlawful to evict a tenant just because you do not like them. Ensure you have a legal and valid reason for the eviction lest you lose the case. Common reasons for Queens NY evictions include:

  • Breaching of the contract such as unapproved pets

  • Refusing or failing to pay rent

  • Causing damage to the property

  • Causing health or safety hazards

  • Breaking noise health or occupancy ordinances

If you have a situation that does not fall in the above categories, document the proof before doing anything. This will help you to urge your case in court. 

Serve the tenant with an eviction notice

The first step after obtaining the proof of service for eviction is presenting a formal eviction notice to the tenant. First, find the local laws to determine the number of days to give the tenant. A formal notice is a document that provides the tenant with a demand to resolve the problem to avoid eviction. 

 Your notice should include details like

  • The specific date for them to fix the problem or leave your property before you file for an eviction. 

  • How much money they owe you in case of  non payment of rent, and any other fees

 

Remember you must post the notice within the set number of days to match the local legal requirement's request. You must mail the notice and post it on their door. Be sure that the mail is certified and request a return receipt through USPS to verify they have received the notice.

File for eviction through a Landlord Lawyer in Queens if the tenant refuses to make the necessary changes.

Court hearing

Before going for the hearing, prepare all the documents you will need to prove your case. You will need these following documents:

  • Lease agreement

  • Records of their payment. 

  • Any bounced check issued by the tenant

  • Records of communication between the two of you

  • A copy of the eviction notice you sent to the tenant and proof of the receipt.
