New York residents struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic can’t be evicted by their landlords until at least Aug. 20, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday.
Cuomo’s announcement extends the state’s previous moratorium on evictions, which lasted only through June.
“I don’t want to see people and their children evicted at this time, through no fault of their own,” Cuomo said.
Landlords are also prohibited from charging tenants late fees during the public health crisis, and renters will be allowed to apply their security deposits
