NY STATE EVICTION MORATORIUM:
On August 12, the courts issued a new order extending the universal eviction moratorium until at least October 1, 2020. The moratorium applies to residential tenants in all types of housing. Through this extension, landlords will not be able to evict tenants due to a lack of payment until 10/01/2020. The moratorium also applies to all pre-existing orders.
