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.
