Gov. Cuomo Extends Commercial Eviction, Foreclosure Ban until January
For the fourth time since the COVID-19 pandemic hit New York in March, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he will extend a moratorium on evicting commercial tenants, this time until Jan. 1, 2021. The most recent moratorium was set to expire on Oct. 20, and Cuomo’s extension for commercial tenants is in line with the eviction moratorium given to New York’s residential tenants during the COVID-19 pandemic. The governor can extend the ban only for 30-day periods, which means the latest order will need to be renewed again on Nov. 19.
