    Answered . The landlord can terminate your tenancy even if you are on disability and have no other place to go. However, the landlord must first get a court issued judgment and warrant of eviction by bringing a summary proceeding in the town court where you apartment is located. You should consult an experienced landlord/tenant attorney.

    I believe you posted this question twice with different facts. In any case, your access to the Internet would have provided an answer to your question, as no where in the State of New York, or in the entire country, is a landlord allowed to bypass the legal system and just "kick out" a tenant. Everywhere the answer is the same although the process differs from state to state. New York State poses one of the most difficult procedural statutes and so a landlord must satisfy a judge with competent proof, as well as a basis under the tenant's lease, why an eviction should be ordered. As long as you are prepared to meet the landlord's case and have evidence t o rebut the charge, you should win.
