Governor Signs Eviction/Foreclosure Moratorium Bill

A bill drafted and introduced by the NYS legislature on December 24, 2020 (A.11181/S.9114) that would prevent evictions and eviction proceedings against residential tenants and prevent foreclosure actions against homeowners and certain small landlords experiencing financial or health-related hardships due to coronavirus until May 1, 2021, was passed in a special session on December 28th and signed by the Governor that evening and is effective immediately.

Under the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020, tenants and homeowners must make "hardship declarations," subject to penalty of perjury,  to their landlord (tenants) and lienholder (homeowners) of their inability to pay their housing expense.  The bill stays residential foreclosure proceedings for sixty days, and allows borrowers who own ten or fewer residential dwellings, including their primary residence, who are experiencing financial hardship to file a hardship declaration with the mortgage lender, other foreclosing party or the court that will prevent the filing and proceedings on a foreclosure action until May 1, 2021.
