The Sheriff's Office handles evictions that involve the enforcement of a court order or warrant. The fee for performing an eviction is $140.00.
Examples of court orders:
- If a property owner buys a foreclosed property and the tenants refuse to leave.
- A divorce action where one party is awarded the property and the other party refuses to leave.
- A warrant of eviction, also known as a warrant of dispossess, is issued by the court to recover possession of real property. It is most frequently used where a landlord wishes to remove a tenant for non-payment of rent or to remove a tenant who remains in the property after the expiration of the lease. Landlord/tenant cases in NYC Civil Court that result in an eviction are generally handled by the City Marshals.
