Hi, I have a question about eviction.
I am writing to find out some information about the process of
eviction. I am the third, unauthorized roomate in a rent stabilized
apartment that has recently been served a "notice to cure."
My roomate was advised by her lawyer to "cure" the situation by serving
me an eviction notice that stipulates that I must leave by May 30th. I
have several questions:
1) If the roomate who served the eviction papers isn't hostile, do I
really have to be out by May 30th? What happens if I am not?
2) If my roomate loses her case and the entire apartment is served with
an eviction notice, what rights do we have in terms of length of time
that we stay here? Are we obligated to leave on the date they
determine or is their a course of action we can take to lengthen the
3) How quickly do these cases usually go to court?
