Hi Hamar,

Yah, Welcome!  Hey here's a question I've had about the Hudson Valley that is crucial to my investment world:  I guess it's more of a question about NYS in general:  How is the tenant/ landlord law in NYS and or Ulster Valley, POK?  

I come from investing in Colorado and Idaho where if I move quickly at the beginning of the month, I can have a tenant out by the end of the month.  I lived in California where I hear nightmares about 6 months to 18 months to get a tenant out, if the tenant is wily enough.

I'm invested in Missouri now and everyone says 45 days max, but just had a tenant pull some crazy stuff to milk the free rent teat for waay too long;  I'm not even sure what happened there, yet!  

I'm just looking into Connecticut, which sounds like I don't want to go there.

Tell me about NY.  

Thanks buddy!

Hi @Alan Brown ,

The tenant/ landlord laws are very different here in the Hudson Valley area.  Yes, It could take 6 to 18 months or less to get a tenant out because you pretty much have to build a case on your tenant. This involves court proceedings, Documentation, proof of tenant lease violation etc.. The process for proving the tenant needs to be evicted can take some time and money. Your best bet is to screen your prospective tenants to the best of your ability and hopefully weed out future headaches.
