NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today issued guidance to New Yorkers highlighting how to navigate tenant issues related to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).  

New York residents are under an order by the state to remain in their homes. Beginning March 20, 2020, all evictions across New York State were suspended until June 19, 2020, and the courts are not accepting any new eviction or foreclosure cases. Threats of eviction are not only illegal, but also damaging to the well-being of New Yorkers.
