: If you have the money for the back rent, you shouldn't worry about being
: evicted. Also, you cannot be evicted without first being sent a notice
: to appear in court.
: One thing you could do is to bring the back rent to the office of the
: owner but make sure you get a receipt for payment (extremely important).
: If you send in a check, send it by certified mail. Then you will be
: able to show the court that you did pay the back rent. If you do end
: up in court, the only thing likely to happen is that you will be ordered
: to pay the back rent.
We don't know if this guy is in NYC or not, but in most places it's illegal
to evict without court process (see the material on the web page on that).
This might have been a reminder to the tenant rather than a scheduled
eviction. In NYC for a summary proceeding (housing court) they need to send
a three-day notice before even issuing a court petition. If the guy sends it
in now (certified as you suggested) there's no way he'll be evicted.
