Moratorium on commercial evictions in New York State extended to January 2021

This aligns with the state's moratorium on residential evictions that have also been extended to January 1, 2021.

NEW YORK — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo provided an update on the state's progress on the COVID-19 pandemic during a conference call on Tuesday. 

During the call Governor Cuomo announced that moratorium on commercial evictions has been extended to January 1, 2021.

This aligns with the state's moratorium on residential evictions that have also been extended to January 1, 2021.

Back in June, a Manhattan federal judge ruled that Governor Cuomo acted constitutionally when he temporarily banned evictions because of the coronavirus

The judge said in a written decision Monday that the eviction moratorium does not violate the First Amendment rights of three large landlords who sued the state.
