Summary Proceedings, Evictions & Landlord Tenant Matters

Landlord/Tenant Proceedings

The Town Court has jurisdiction over landlord/tenant proceedings for non-payment of rent, evictions, holdovers, and to compel repairs.  The monetary jurisdiction is unlimited. The property must be located in the Town of Halfmoon.

Please contact the court directly for specific dates and times.

There is a $20 filing fee for evictions.

 

Please note that the court clerks are not attorneys and cannot provide any legal advice. As such, the Court cannot provide guidance to Landlords seeking to evict Tenants. Additionally, the Court cannot dispense advice to Tenants who have been served with a Notice of Eviction. Please contact an attorney to address these matters of law and represent your individual interests.
