When given a 60-day notice to vacate the premises. Does that mean you have to be out before 60 days are up?
In most, if not all, states, a landlord must file an action in the locality’s Landlord-Tenant court if the tenant is still in the apartment. There are grounds in some cases, depending upon the state’s laws, to terminate a tenancy upon prior notice. But there are also potential defenses a tenant may use. You must determine the following, under your state’s laws, and in some cases, under federal laws and regulations (especially HUD, if applicable):(1) Is the landlord even legally permitted to terminate your tenancy upon 60-day notice? While your lease may include such a provision, you must be familiar with and understand what your state’s laws say about a landlord terminating a tenancy.(2) When does the statutory notice period begin and when does it end?(3) Does the law require any additional notices or procedures prior to a lease being terminated? For instance, is there a specific manner of service required by the state’s laws? (e.g. regular and certified mailing, hand delivery?). In many states, a defective notice is a ground to have the eviction action dismissed.(4) Does federal law apply? In many federally-subsidized apartments, including those where a tenant is residing in private housing but obtains, either directly, as through a voucher (e.g. Section 8 voucher), or by means of a subsidy paid to the owner that applies only to the building, there are specific notice requirements that may be stricter than the state’s own notice requirements.(5) Does the state require an eviction ‘for cause’? Determine whether the law in your state enumerates specific grounds to evict, to the exclusion of any evictions that are not for cause.Even if the landlord followed proper notice procedures and the contours of your state’s law, the landlord will still have to file an action in court if you remain in possession, and may not, in all likelihood, lock you out, change the locks, throw out or remove your belongings, or compel you to move out, by threats or physical actions. The landlord ultimately must file an action in court if you remain in possession. You should apprise yourself of your state’s laws regarding eviction actions and consider consulting with an attorney.
How should I respond to an unenforceable 20-day notice to vacate?
Ok a few points:Fires don’t add value to homes… I’ve been in this business for longer than you’ve been alive, and I’ve never looked at a property and thought “hmmm, this just needs a good fire to go up in value!”“I talked to the police and the said its totally illegal” police literally know nothing about the law. AND an eviction is a civil matter. Not paying your rent is totally legal too, but will get you evicted. So, a notice and an eviction are always legal, because there aren’t laws against them.Ignoring a notice, or going to court saying “we weren’t properly served” literally almost never works. For evictions, in most states, taped to your door counts. A certified letter counts. Also, for process service for evictions, in my state I can give it to ANY adult in the property, it doesn’t have to be someone on the lease. If that happened by a process server, or they observed you there, that point will be dismissed directly. Further, if the judge asks you “did you get this notice” and you answer in any way that is untruthful, and that gets proven, you could go to jail for perjury. So, you have to answer truthfully, which is, as proven in your question, that you got the notice… I have literally seen tenants say “my landlord emailed me the notice, and it was supposed to be served… blah blah blah.” and the judge ask, “did you get the email? did you read it?” and once that was established, throw out the objection to service.On a month to month lease, barring some weird local laws, your landlord could simply give you notice to leave. IN my state, one month’s notice would suffice. On a lease, there would have to be a reason. You have not mentioned the reason your landlord is using to end your lease. In my life, I’ve only used 2: A. Failure to pay rent, and B. moving in a felon boyfriend who is irritating the neighbors.So, what is the reason your landlord is using? Is it related to the fire, like, say, you guys started the fire? Because if it is, you can bet your ass you will get evicted for that! Even if the landlord did ok with his insurance, that is literally none of your business, and telling a judge, “yeah we lit the house on fire… but his insurance paid him, so its cool, we want to stay…” is going to make for comedy gold in court!
When do you decide to give a tenant 30-day vacate notice vs 60-day vacate notice in NYC?
For a "month-to month" tenancy, all that is required is 30 days' notice to terminate the lease. It does not matter how long the tenant was in occupancy, nor does it matter whether the tenant believes that 30 days is "reasonable," since the law establishes 30 days as a reasonable time for a tenant to vacate after receiving notice.
Can I file an eviction notice after a 30-day notice to vacate the property?
Read your local city or state landlord tenant law. They will outline the eviction process in detail for you. You should read and know them all anyways if you are renting property, to protect yourself from costly mistakes.In many areas, it is actually quite easy to do yourself, at the local court, but you do have to follow each step perfectly, or you might have your case thrown out.In some areas, there is a law firm that specializes in this. In Phoenix, where I do business, there is firm that does it for like $150 or something. At that price, I used them, even though I know how to do it myself, because it wasn’t worth my time to drive across town two or three times to file and go to court in the proper local court, 25 miles from where I live.

Does a landlord need to give a 30 day vacate notice before proceeding to evict?
It may depend on the state where you live, and on the situation.In Texas, only 3 full days are required… the landlord can file on the fourth day if he wants.If you are month-to-month AND you have done nothing wrong, the landlord can require you to move by giving at least 30-days notice. It can be for any reason or no reason at all. You are a Tenant At Sufferance.But if you have done anything wrong (like late rent), that’s out the window and he’s back to an immediate 3-day eviction notice.If you’re willing to get all your belongings stacked at the curb by strangers, and have a judgment against you for 10 years, you can wait out the entire eviction process, which takes about six weeks in Texas.Once you have failed to comply with a 3-day eviction notice and a suit is filed, it moves forward after that, even if you pay up everything you owe while waiting for trial or move out while waiting.In some other states, putting you and all you own out to the curb takes significantly longer, but you still have the downsides mentioned above when the dust settles.
