As long as you can prove to the housing court that you own/control that unit (ie proprietary lease is in your name), and that you have no agreement in force (ie roommate/sublet agreement) with your relatives, you can go through the eviction process without involving your building's management.
As far as not having a lawyer, it can be done without one, but the process is fairly exacting, and if you screw it up, you probably have to start all over again. A lawyer will help prevent this.
: I own a Mitchell Lama coop. For the last serveral years I have been traveling extensively and haven't been in the apartment that often. I allowed some distant relatives to stay there while I traveled (they didn't bother me the little that I was hame). Now I have moved back in full time but the relatives won't leave and they are driving me nuts!!!! The people in the office know they have been staying with me but do not know that I haven't been around. I want to evict my relatives but am afraid that the owners of the building may find reason to evict me if I let them know about the situation. Do I have to give the housing authority or DHCR notice about my wish to evict my relatives? If so, what particular form of notice must I give? Please don't suggest I see an attorney as I can't afford to do so and have already explored all the por buno alternatives and can't find representation.
