New York Evictions Stopped Until 2021
A moratorium on evictions in New York is extended through the end of the year.
Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order that says landlords won’t be allowed to evict their tenants for not making rent until January 1.
Landlords say it puts more pressure on them because they have to still pay expenses on their properties amid the pandemic.
The order is separate from a federal moratorium that also runs through 2020.
Tenants are expected to back pay rent in the new year, but a growing number of Democratic state lawmakers have urged Cuomo to “cancel rent" and allow tenants to waive rent payments altogether.
