New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said Friday he would enact laws to extend the state’s current eviction moratorium on commercial tenants through May 1. He will also introduce laws banning late payments or fees for missed rental payments during the pandemic.
“COVID-19 has created tremendous difficulties for homeowners, as well as commercial and residential renters, as we put in place the restrictions necessary to protect public health and owe them security from eviction until they can get back on their feet,” said Cuomo.
He added, “The pandemic should not affect our ability to make room for our shops and rooftops over our heads. That support will fuel a faster and stronger recovery once we are out of COVID.”
Both proposals will be included in the governor’s state address, which Cuomo is expected to submit on Monday.
