The Supreme Court has rolled back the strongest protection NYS tenants had under the COVID 19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act, more commonly known as the “eviction moratorium.” This roll back means that the thousands of tenants that have submitted hardship declaration forms self-attesting they have experienced a hardship due to COVID 19 are in danger of eviction. Landlords can now challenge the validity of these self-attestations due to this horrible decision from the Supreme Court. This puts our neighbors at risk of eviction and we need to do something about it NOW!
