New York Eviction Protection for Renters to be extended

The Biden Administration has stepped in to provide rental relief for thousands of New Yorkers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) extended the eviction ban through to the end of July. The ban on rental evictions had been in place since September 2020, was set to expire on June 31.

New York has further extended this moratorium until the end of September, with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo extending the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020. With COVID-19 restrictions set to be eased, commercial and residential tenants will need to start negotiations with landlords over the outstanding amounts owed. We suspect many landlords shall be in dire straights. Our firm believes that we will see many of these rental issues back in the court system later in the year. The full details of the extension on the New York Rental Protection Orders can be found here.

Renters won’t have the freeze applied automatically and will need to file a CDC declaration form with their landlord to be eligible for protection. If the landlord is choosing to ignore the moratorium, then we would advise your to engage an attorney to assist with these decisions.
