The New York 14-day notice to quit is a written notice delivered to a tenant that has not paid their rent informing them they have fourteen (14) days to pay the amount due or vacate the rental unit. The notice also relays that the tenant’s failure to comply may result in the landlord starting legal action for their removal. In addition to this notice, § 235-e(d) states that five (5) days after the rent is due and the tenant has not paid rent, the landlord must send a written warning to the tenant which communicates that their rent is overdue.
To be accepted in court for an eviction case, the landlord must also complete an Affidavit of Personal Service, if the notice is served in-person, or an Affidavit of Substituted or Conspicuous Place Service, if the notice was posted on the rental unit and sent by mail. Both affidavits require a notary acknowledgment.
