Can a Landlord Lock Out a Commercial Tenant in New York? 

In New York, a commercial landlord has the legal right to evict a commercial tenant under certain circumstances, such as non-payment of rent or a breach of the lease agreement. The eviction process for commercial tenants differs from residential evictions and is governed by the New York Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law (RPAPL). 

To initiate an eviction, the landlord must first serve the tenant with a written notice specifying the grounds for eviction, such as a rent demand or a notice to cure. If the tenant fails to remedy the situation within the specified time frame, the landlord can commence a summary proceeding in court, seeking a judgment of possession and a warrant of eviction. 

It is important to note that commercial landlords cannot engage in "self-help" measures, such as changing the locks or forcibly removing the tenant, as these actions are illegal. Instead, the eviction must be carried out by a licensed city marshal or sheriff after obtaining a court order.
