In Reply to: NY Eviction Law posted by Linda on February 13, 1999 at 16:15:41:

New York law bars a landlord from evicting any tenant who has lived more than 30 days in an apartment without first obtaining a warrant of eviction in court. Court cases can take anywhere from one month to many years. I would opine from my twenty years of experience that the average case where the tenant is determined not to pay takes about three months.

: I am doing research and need help. An author stated that in Manhattan, a tenant
: can live in an apartment for 18 months without paying rent...and that the
: landlord could not evict until after 18 months. What has he left out?
: Landlords must have some type of recourse. Please help!
