ALBANY, N.Y. — The state’s moratorium on COVID-related evictions and foreclosures has been extended through January 1.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo made that initial announcement on residential and commercial evictions back on March 20th.
The moratorium is aimed at protecting people and businesses who are behind on mortgage or rent payments due to unemployment or other impacts from the pandemic.
A moratorium on commercial and residential foreclosures and evictions for all New Yorkers has been extended through Jan. 1. Landlords circumventing these orders will be breaking the law. Know your rights. @NYGovCuomo https://t.co/MYoC1X4KZq
