COVID-19 Emergency Eviction & Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020
On December 28, 2020, Governor Cuomo signed into law the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020 (L. 2020, c. 381; “Act”). Among other things, the Act published “Hardship Declarations” that, if signed and submitted by residential tenants and residential homeowners/mortgagors, would require their cases to be temporarily delayed (or not started) until at least May 1, 2021. The Act required that these Hardship Declarations be translated into Spanish and the six most common languages spoken in New York City (in addition to Spanish). These translations may be found in the links below.
