New York State Law
If a rental fee of a safety deposit box is not paid, or after the termination of the lease for such box, and after 30 days of giving proper notice to the lessee, the lessor ( bank ), may, in the presence of a notary public, open the safe deposit box, remove the inventory of the contents. The notary public shall then file with the lessor a certificate under seal which states the date of the opening of the safe deposit box, the name of the lessee, and a list of the contents. Within 10 days of the opening of the safe deposit box, a copy of this certificate must be mailed to the lessee at his last known postal address.
