The New York ten (10) day notice to quit, also known as a “Notice to Cure,” is a document which is used to begin the eviction process when a tenant has committed one or more lease violations. The notice tells the tenant how long they have to fix the problem or vacate the rental unit. The notice must be served to the tenant personally or by certified mail. However, the landlord cannot serve the notice in person themselves and must, therefore, have an acquaintance of at least eighteen (18) years of age or professional process server serve the notice. If the tenant does not cure the violations or move out by the date stated in the notice, the landlord must serve them with a thirty (30) day Notice of Termination before they can sue them for possession of the rental property.
