Governor Cuomo has signed the the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act recently passed by the State Legislature. The act extends the moratorium on COVID-related residential evictions until May 1, 2021 while also providing foreclosure protections to homeowners and small landlords.
In his daily email to New York State Residents last evening he wrote "Many New Yorkers have faced economic hardship as result of the COVID-19 pandemic through no fault of their own, and this legislation helps ensure that no one is forced out of their home during this incredibly difficult period. The more support we provide for tenants, mortgagors and seniors, the easier it will be for them to get back on their feet when the pandemic ends. I thank the Legislature for passing this important protection for New Yorkers all across the state who need a hand."
