*New Requirements for Landlords*

Posted by Jordan Tapia | Aug 18, 2021

According to CHIP's recent update on the DRP 217 that was issued yesterday by The Office of Court Administration, in order for a landlord to proceed on evicting a tenant they must first comply with the two new requirements. The owner must first make a motion for the court to issue a new warrant. Assuming the motion is granted, the landlord then has to make a second motion for warrant's to be executed. The expectation is that, if all goes well, this should take at least two months, on the other hand if tenants contest the motion the process might take up to a year. In addition to these new requirements, before any warrant can be issued, the New York City Sheriff's Office is requiring property owners to complete a form stating that they are aware of the CDC eviction moratorium and that the tenant in question has not invoked it's protection. Even with all these new regulations, tenants are still scared that a mass eviction is about to happen. This is here to prove that there are still a lot of steps in order for an eviction to happen. We will be posting more updates soon. Stay safe!
