They are behind so I can use this as a reason. I can’t prove the other things. Except destruction of property. I do have before pictures. The real problem is that the woman has mental problems and is constantly screaming at all hours. They are filthy people and now I had to call an exterminator. I can’t prove these things in court but I think just on being behind in rent should do it.
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 7 months ago

All you need is one good ground. So if they are behind on rent, that is all you need.

.

In New York the landlord can begin eviction proceedings by giving a 3 day written notice demanding payment of rent. After the 3 days were up, Landlord would have to go to court and file a complaint for eviction. Then the tenant has 5 days to respond or Landlord can get a default judgment. If tenant responds with an Answer within the 5 day period, the case will be set for a hearing to determine who should have legal possession. This can take several weeks to get scheduled depending on the court's docket. After the hearing, assuming the Landlord wins, the tenant has 72 hours to move. Then the Landlord can get a writ of possession from the sheriff, marshal, or constables office and have them personally appear and evict.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
