Real Estate Law (esp. Landlord-Tenant)/I want my roommate to vacate my apartment.
My roommate and I are not getting along. He and I share the rent. He is a month to month roommate and is not on my lease. We do not have a written agreement only verbal. I wrote a 30 day notice letter to vacate the apartment. I gave him the letter on May 9, 2013 and put in the letter that he is to vacate on June 08,2013. I also put that if he does not vacate on June 08,2013, I will take legal actions against him. I live in New York City. Please let me know if what I did is correct.
It's possible that you may need to give him a longer notice period. Some states, such as California, require a 60 day notice if the tenant has lived in the house for a year or more. Also, some jurisdictions have rent control laws that make it more difficult to evict. You should check NY law here:
