The New York ten (10) day notice to quit, for use under RPL §§ 753(4), is used to notify a tenant of their violation(s), and how long they have to fix (i.e. “cure”) the violation(s) or vacate the rental unit. The notice must be served to the tenant personally (but not by the landlord), through the mail (and posted on the premises), or left with a reasonably aged resident of the rental property (as well as sent via certified mail). If the tenant does not cure the violations (or move out) by the date stated in the notice, the landlord can sue them for possession of the rental property (and have them evicted by court order).
How to Write
Step 1 – Enter the date (DD/MM/YYYY) in the first input field at the top of the notice, and then print the name of the landlord (or property manager). Provide a contact email address and phone number.
Step 2 – Fill in the full name of the tenant, and enter the tenant’s full address (street, apartment number, city, state, ZIP).
Step 3 – Enter a description of the lease violation(s), and then enter the date that the tenant must fix the violations or move out by. Sign your name in the “landlord signature” field.
Step 4 – The “Certificate of Service” section must be filled out after the notice has been served to the tenant. Fill in the date/time of service, and then select the service method (personal delivery, left at residence, certified mail, etc.).
Note: If the notice was served personally, the service provider must sign their name in the “Signature” field. The notice can only be sent via mail if the landlord has tried to locate the tenant (at the rental residence) at least two times prior to mailing the notice. If the notice is sent via mail, it must also be posted on the premises of the rental property.
