14 Day Notice to Pay or Quit πŸ“…

When a Tenant Fails to Pay πŸ’΅

In New York State, Property Owners & Managers may execute a 14 Day Notice to Pay "in-house" and be ready to move forward (if necessary) with the help of a Local Process Server.

⚠️ IMPORTANT: Property Owners and Managers are no longer permitted to Serve their tenants directly, because all Notices must now be served "in the same manor in which a Notice of Petition is Served" (prohibiting "a party to the action" from Serving it directly). Click here for details! ⚠️

Serving a 14 Day Notice in New York State requires a Process Server to make up to three (3) attempts, on three (3) different days, at three (3) different times of day, within a seven (7) day period. Service may begin after the fifth (5th) day of delinquency or later. USPS First Class and Certified Mail may also be required.

A signed & notarized Affidavit of Service is included for up to three specific occupants per address.

When a Tenant Refuses to Pay 🚫

The court may request the original copy of the Affidavit provided from the 14 Day Notice above.

Attorneys & Law Firms which provide a Notary stamp and file their notices directly with the court may request Service for a Notice of Petition. Property Owners & Managers are encouraged to continue to work through their preferred Attorney and/or Law Firm.

Within the City of Rochester, paperwork must be submitted and the fee paid before Service may begin, while surrounding areas provide a court date and collect the fee after Service is complete.

Should the fourteen (14) days expire without payment, a Notice of Petition must be filed and Served. This will again require a Process Server make up to three (3) attempts, on three (3) different days, at three (3) different times of day, within a seven (7) day period. USPS First Class and Certified Mail may also be required. Service must occur between seventeen (17) & ten (10) days before the scheduled court date, with short deadlines to notarize & file the Affidavit(s) of Service.

For warrant(s) of eviction, the Monroe County Sheriff's Civil Bureau or the corresponding agency within your jurisdiction may be able to help.
