New landlord here and I am in New York City. I have a tenant who has stopped paying rent all together since June 2020. Since his lease ends in July 31, 2020, I issued him with a non-renewal lease letter. He just called me and said he isn't going to move out because of corona virus.
Should I wait until august 1 to evict him for staying past his lease or start the eviction process now for non payment of his rent by giving him the 3 day rent demand.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
