Holdover Eviction Proceedings:

A holdover case is commenced by a landlord to evict a commercial or residential tenant for reasons other than non-payment of rent.

A holdover case, by its very nature, is difficult and highly technical because a landlord is seeking a Court Order for a tenant’s eviction. Several grounds for a holdover case include non-primary residence, illegal subletting, expiration of tha lease, nuisance, illegal activities and other violations of tha lease.

Prior to the commencement of a holdover proceeding, the landlord must often serve predicate notices pursuant to statutes and case law. Novick Edelstein Pomerantz will review your case and prepare any predicate notices to be served by our licensed process server.

In the event the tenant has not surrendered possession, a landlord may file a petition and notice of the petition in Housing Court which ultimately begins a case in Civil Court. The law office of Novick Edelstein Pomerantz will prepare a petition and notice of petition and file your case.
