Landlords looking to boot non-paying commercial tenants will have to wait until the new year.

New York’s moratorium on commercial evictions and foreclosures due to non-payment of rent will be in place through Jan. 1, 2021, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced in a press conference Tuesday.

The governor can only extend the ban for 30-day periods — meaning the latest order will need to be renewed again on Nov. 19. A spokesperson for the governor’s office said the ban would remain in place.

As of last week in Rochester, 27 eviction

There have been protests across Boston during the past few days calling for an extension of the moratorium.

Although it expires Saturday, the Baker administration has announced millions of dollars in additional resources for people who are having trouble paying rent.

When that expires, a CDC moratorium will also kick in immediately, but residents have to meet certain eligibility requirements.

‘Last-ditch’ effort made to extend eviction, foreclosure moratorium before it expires dies in Legislature

Theatrics outside a courthouse, calls from the federal delegation and a last-ditch legislative Hail Mary weren’t enough to bring lawmakers back to the State House to act on a bill to extend an eviction and foreclosure ban set to expire on Saturday.

“This was a last-ditch effort … but it’s disappointing,” state Rep. Mike Connolly said after lawmakers — by their inaction — decided to allow the clock on the moratorium to run out.

The Cambridge Democrat was able to get a bill to extend the temporary ban on evictions and foreclosures passed in the House, but it didn’t vote until the Senate had already adjourned for the weekend.

Landlords warn eviction ban bill would lead to foreclosures, slums

A bill that would halt evictions and freeze rents for a year after Gov. Charlie Baker lifts the coronavirus state of emergency has cleared its first major hurdle but faces staunch opposition from landlords who say it would lead to foreclosures, slums and worse.

“The further people get behind in their rent, the less likely they will ever be able to pay it. If we don’t deal with this problem and we wait another year, there’s a lot of money that will never get paid,” said Greg Vasil, CEO and president of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board. “It’s the property owners who lose. We’ll see foreclosures and properties will start to fall into disrepair.”

The eviction protection bill cleared the Joint Committee on Housing in a 14-3 party-line vote on Thursday. Proponents say the bill aims to keep tenants in their home after losing jobs due to the pandemic.
