Governor Cuomo signed the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020 yesterday, to protect New Yorkers from Eviction and Foreclosures that are COVID-related until May 1, 2021. The bill that Cuomo signed also prevents credit discrimination, negative credit reporting, and Tax Lien sales and foreclosures related to the pandemic. The moratorium on evictions was first announced back in March to prevent tenants from being evicted at the peak of a public health emergency. The bill that was just signed continues to protect tenants and homeowners in a time of economic hardship. It also includes an extension to the Senior Citizens’ Homeowner Exemption and Disabled Homeowner Exemption into next year.
