Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your landlord-tenant law question today. I'm attorney Bill assisting you with this matter.

To evict your son you can provide him a 10/30 day notice period under the law as he isn't paying any rent or without a fixed term lease agreement.

a 10 day notice for a licensee or a 30 day notice for a month to month tenant.

"232-a. Notice to terminate monthly tenancy or tenancy from month to month in the city of New York. No monthly tenant, or tenant from month to month, shall hereafter be removed from any lands or buildings in the city of New York on the grounds of holding over his term unless at least thirty days before the expiration of the term the landlord or his agent serve upon the tenant, in the same manner in which a notice of petition in summary proceedings is now allowed to be served by law, a notice in writing to the effect that the landlord elects to terminate the tenancy and that unless the tenant removes from such premises on the day on which his term expires the landlord will commence summary proceedings under the statute to remove such tenant therefrom."

If he fails to vacate within 10/ 30 days you can start evictions at your local housing court.

You will be allow to charge rent after 10/30 days for him holding over.

Information about the notice to quit is obtainable here:

Here is a 10 day notice:

Thanks. Are you in NYC?

This is a legal information only website so you will need to contact another attorney if you need to file an eviction.

The notice to vacate in most cases suffices but obviously not in all.

Here is s guide to the housing court court if you need to file an eviction which you can do without an attorney:
