Critical Executive Order on eviction comes just in time.

Governor Cuomo announced an extension of a moratorium on evictions during the coronavirus pandemic. The moratorium was due to expire at midnight, but is now extended to September 4, 2020.

The Governor’s Executive Order is covered under the Tenant Safe Harbor Act. The Act provides protections for tenants that are unable to pay their rent because of the pandemic. Governor Cuomo signed the Act into law on June 30, 2020. 

In order to be considered covered under the Tenant Safe Harbor Act, a judge will consider:

  • Income prior to the pandemic (March 7, 20202).
  • Income during the pandemic.
  • Liquid assets.
  • Eligibility for and receipt of cash assistance or other benefits like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), and federal and state Unemployment Insurance (UI).
