The Office of Court Administration further clarified the ban on evictions. It has now been extended to October 1, 2020 for residential tenants but only until August 19, 2020 for commercial tenants. The order is here.
As noted in the previous post, this is only a ban on evictions. Landlords remain free to prosecute previously filed cases and to file new cases. For the time being, however, only cases filed prior to March 17, 2020 are being processed by the court. Cases filed after that date are on hold.
Please call David at 917.913.7556 if you have any questions.
