Notice to Pay or Quit
If it's been at least five days since the rent was due, a property owner or manager may provide their tenant(s) with a notification, such as overdue invoice or a letter including the particular details; via USPS Certified Mail (no signature required) indicating that rent is past due. A Process Server may then begin making attempts to Serve the tenant(s) with a 14 Day Notice to Pay or Quit or other similar Landlord / Tenant (L&T) Notice.
Serving an eviction notice requires that the same third party individual make up to three (3) attempts, on three (3) different days, at three (3) different times of day, within a seven (7) day period.
IMPORTANT: Property Managers may be considered "a party to the action" when Serving an eviction notice to their tenants directly. L&T Notices must be Served in the same manner in which a Notice of Petition & Petition is Served.
Notice of Petition & Petition
Service must occur between seventeen (17) & ten (10) days before the scheduled court date, with short deadlines to notarize & file the Affidavit of Service. Within the City of Rochester, paperwork must be submitted and the fee paid before eviction services may begin, while surrounding areas provide a court date and collect the fee afterward.
Property managers are encouraged to recommend us to their preferred attorney or law firm.
For warrant(s) of eviction, contact your local County Sheriff's Civil Bureau.
