Notice to Petitioner In Eviction Proceedings
Evictions are processed through our Civil Unit and after all applicable fees are paid, it is given to the Deputy Sheriff for service. Once the eviction is served the tenant will generally have three to five days to vacate the premises. This does not include the day of service, weekends or holidays.
The Deputy sheriff will contact you by telephone with the next scheduled available outdate and the time he or another Deputy Sheriff will be reporting back to the premises.
You are responsible for having at least three movers ready in case the tenant is not out by the out date, this number may increase due to the quantity of contents that need to be removed. It may also be necessary for you to provide a locksmith in order to gain access to the premises. Any vehicles left on the property please refer to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles for proper removal of abandoned and unclaimed vehicles.
Once the building is completely vacant the Deputy Sheriff will do a walk through and turn possession back over to the landlord.
Failure to Appear
Your outdate will be cancelled if you fail to appear on the date and time of the eviction and/or your movers are not ready. We will return the original warrant to the court and your fees will not be refunded.
