NYC Housing Court on Eviction Moratorium Due to Coronavirus

Effective March 13, 2020, the New York City Housing Courts are on a one-week moratorium on evictions in New York City, subject to further extension upon review. Further, New York City Housing Court is also directed to decline to issue new eviction warrants when a party has not appeared in court, until further notice.

This moratorium is imposed through a memorandum on the coronavirus from the Chief Administrative Judge of the State of New York Unified Court System. You can read the memorandum here.
