Effective immediately, landlords and lenders no longer need to submit an attorney affirmation or petitioner’s affidavit with the petition or complaint in an eviction or foreclosure proceeding pursuant to Administrative Judge Marks’ July 7, 2020 memorandum.

This directive amends the procedure for eviction and foreclosure proceedings as set forth on Judge Marks’ June 18 and June 23, 2020 memoranda and as explained in our blogs HERE and HERE. All other requirements and rules stated therein remain in effect. This includes the requirement to serve the Notice to Respondent Tenant or the Notice to Respondent with the commencement documents, as well as rules concerning the calendaring of hearing and motion practice as stated therein.
