: : : Greetings
: : served me with a disposess notice with 3 days to turn over possesion of the property on Nov 24th. From what I've managed to find on the web, the 3 day notice is right. But is that three 24 periods or three business days...? ie. not including Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays.

: : Where?

: I live in Northern New York State.

: : 3 days means 3 24-hour periods, 3 business days, 3 court-open days: depends on exactly what the law says and if it only says 'days', then depends also on how your state courts interpret that.

In all of NY state, days mean calendar days (3 24-hour periods), unless the statute says otherwise. Read more on this website: a 3-day notice is usually the first step in eviction, not the last. It is a 3-day rent demand: pay up or get sued. A tenant can only be evicted with a court order. After that, the tenant receives a 72-hour notice of eviction from the sheriff.
