: Not to say anything crazy, but you are suppose to get the Judgement in the mail after which at any time of day you could be evicted. The landlord could have taken the paperwork to the Marshall and speeded up the process by giving them some money or hiring phony moving men to evict you.
: You should have been givin a chance to fight the judgement with an Order to show Cause.
: I once received a Judgement against me and call the Marshall to see when I was scheduled for eviction. They where polite and gave me the date, I moved out before that date and I didn't worry about it.
: Do an Order to show cause asking for more time and get the eviction date from the Marshalls Office. You may have been duped.
: : Hi! had a trial in Manhattan Housing Court: lost, mostly. The warrant was issued TWO DAYS after the Marshall's requisition was received and time-stamped by the clerk. A well-respected tenant attorney of many years experience said this was 'almost unheard of', that landlords complain daily that it takes two to six weeks from receipt to issuance. He suggested that I ask you: tenants, advocates, and/or lawyers what your experience is, in preparation for filing a request for investigation.
: : So: what is normal, typical for Manhattan: two days? two weeks? six weeks?
: : Thank you.
No experience here, but curious about the process, so I asked a few people: results:
per 4 lawyers & 2 advocates: your lawyer is right: note: their experiences are with "2-attorney" cases, not pro-se tenant cases...
