Can landlord evict me for holding over after lease expires?
I am living in a rented house in New York. Per the mutual agreement between me and my landlord, I rented the house on a monthly basis. Can my landlord remove me from the rental premises for occupying the rented house beyond the duration agreed between me and my landlord?01/10/2017 | Category: Landlord Ten... » Lease Termin... | State: New York | #29824
NY CLS Real P § 232-a reads:
“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.”
In the given instance, as you are a monthly tenant, you may be removed from the rental premises for holding the rental property beyond the term.
