    State Issues

    On September 2, New York’s Governor Hochul extended the moratorium on Covid-19-related residential and commercial evictions until January 15, 2022. According to the announcement, “all protections of the Tenant Safe Harbor Act for residential tenants who are suffering financial hardship as a result of the pandemic will remain in place, along with new protections on commercial evictions.” For our previous coverage regarding the eviction moratorium, see here.

    The new law also: (i) creates a $25 million fund to provide legal services to tenants facing eviction proceedings and to aid them in maintaining housing stability in areas of New York where there is not access to free legal assistance for such services; and (ii) establishes a $250 million Supplemental Emergency Rental Assistance program to serve additional households and to better support landlords
