His problem is not rocket science he will figure it out. I'm thinking that because he's so young he came here for advice. OP get the advice of a lawyer, Hennas right you might not get the best advice from some posters.
BTW I have been in your shoes, PM me and I will help you out.

Well, you can't give them an eviction notice because you're not evicting them per se, you're simply not electing to renew their lease. That's what your written notice should reflect.

Regardless, I highly recommend getting a lawyer. NYC housing courts are insanely tenant friendly. Even in the most clear cut circumstances, you're looking at a several month delay if they don't move out by their own free will and force you to evict them.

I've been in NY real estate for some time. Can you please advise me on which ethnicity is the ethnicity of abnormal people?

If you're going to be a landlord in NYC, you have to learn the rules. How to do evictions is one of the key sets of rules you have to know. There's a very specific way it has to be done. And, as a landlord, the rules are generally stacked against you. Even if you're clearly in the right, if the tenant puts up a fight, and knows what their doing, they could probably tie things up for six months.

Get a lawyer who knows what he's doing.

agreed. The internet is a great source of information... just because he's asking in a forum doesn't mean he's basing his decision SOLELY off this forum.

So many posters on here come across as bitter and jealous for no reason.

Almost every thread I see has snarky, rude, bitter replies. I don't get it, if people are that upset at the thread topic, then why respond at all?

Are you referring to my post where I mentioned his young age?

If so, you are correct, it wasn't relevant to say anything about his age and I shouldn't have mentioned it. However, I also provided good information that helped the OP so much that he specifically thanked me for it.

What were the positive things you added to this thread?
