New York 30 Day Notice of Termination is a letter which complies with state legal requirements to begin eviction against a tenant for failing to take corrective action demanded by a previous notice to comply. The tenant is no longer given an opportunity to fix the issue, and must move out within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving notice.

When To Use a New York 30 Day Notice of Termination

A New York 30 Day Notice of Termination begins the eviction process when the tenant has failed or refused to take corrective action after a notice to comply. The tenant is no longer allowed corrective action after receiving a Notice of Termination, and must move out by the specified date.

Some types of New York lease termination notice may allow different reasons for termination, or different notice periods. This may also apply to an eviction notice issued because of a lease or legal violation.

How To Write a New York 30 Day Notice of Termination

To help ensure the legal validity of a Notice of Termination:

  1. Use the full name of the receiving party, and address of record, if known
  2. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
  3. Specify the basis for terminating the tenancy
  4. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
  5. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
  6. Print name and sign the notice
  7. Complete the certificate of service by indicating the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

It is easy to lose an otherwise justified legal action because of improper notice. Check carefully to ensure enough time after notice is delivered, not when it’s sent.

How To Serve a New York 30 Day Notice of Termination

New York landlords may deliver a Notice of Termination using any of these methods:

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. Hand delivery to a person of suitable age on the property who can accept the notice on behalf of the other party, PLUS delivery by BOTH registered or certified AND first class mail
  3. Posting at a conspicuous place on the premises, or under the entry door, PLUS delivery by BOTH registered or certified AND first class mail

When notice is not hand-delivered, the mailed portion must be mailed within one (1) calendar day of the posting or other form of delivery. To account for variable delivery times, mailed notice extends the notice period by three (3) calendar days.

note
In almost all cases, notice is legally served when it is received by the other party, NOT when it’s sent. Check specified date of termination carefully to ensure compliance with the legal requirements for a notice period.
