Step 1: Determine What Type Of Eviction You’re Facing
There are only two types of legal evictions - holdover and nonpayment. Holdover evictions are evictions for any issues other than the nonpayment of rent (such as being too loud, overstaying a lease, etc.). Holdover evictions can also differ based on the type of housing that you live in (NYCHA, rent regulated, etc.). Nonpayment evictions are evictions for not paying rent or owing rent. If you’ve received an eviction notice and you’re not sure how to tell which type of notice it is, you can use JustFix.nyc’s Eviction Free NYC tool to compare your notice to several real life samples.
