There are some different timeframes for the eviction process in and around Albany. Today, we’re talking about how long it takes to do an eviction in the capital district.
In Schenectady, you will typically have a three week eviction period from the start of your process until you can get to court. You will file your Three Day Notice and your petition, and then it will normally be three or four weeks until you can see the judge. Then, if you get a warrant for judgment, you’ll have to wait about two weeks for the sheriff to come and evict the tenant. Not every eviction requires the sheriff, but if you do have to have your tenants physically removed, that’s the timeframe you’re looking at in Schenectady.
Troy is the quickest when it comes to evictions. Normally, you’ll have to wait 11 to 15 days to see the judge. After you win your eviction proceeding, you’ll usually have to wait about three days until the Marshall is able to evict your tenants. They are very fast in Troy. This city provides one of the best eviction experiences for a landlord.
Albany is similar to Schenectady. You will have a period of three or four weeks before you can get into court and see the judge, and then you’ll have to wait two weeks for the sheriff. The one thing that makes Albany evictions a little faster is that you won’t have to wait for the judge to sign off on the warrant. In Schenectady, it can sometimes take a few weeks for your judge to sign a judgment warrant, which tacks on a week or two.
Timing is important when you have to evict, so make sure you have a process in place that protects your property and your finances.
