After reviewing the lease, I noticed that I was mistaken: the roommates are NOT listed as occupants on the lease. My name is the only one on the lease.

: I live in Staten Island with two roommates, both listed on the lease as occupants (not leaseholders). I want them both out. One doesn't pay his bills and owes me almost $1000 for rent/utilities. Tthe other, though he pays his rent and utilities on time, is filthy and brings strangers into the house at all hours (sometimes two or more times in a night). Neither helps around the house with general day-to-day chores (dishes, cleaning bathroom, picking up after themselves, etc.). What do I have to do to get them out? When I spoke to them about the problems I was having with them, they suggested that they could take over the lease and I could move. RIGHT!

: Do I need to give them notice in writing? Is there some legal process I must follow (i.e. 30-day notice)? What if they refuse to leave?

: Thanks
