Executive Order Update 

As I’m sure most of you are aware, last night the Governor extended the previous eviction moratorium order and provided a new expiration date of October 1, 2020.


This moratorium only applies to non-payment evictions for those residents who allege that they’ve been adversely affected by the COVID-19 emergency.  The Judge will make the decision as to whether or not the tenant is affected by the emergency.  The tenant must assert this as a defense to the eviction and at such point the eviction will be paused (not dismissed) and will resume when the moratorium ends.

Please note that:

You ARE permitted to file your evictions for non-payment.

It is up to the Judge to make the decision as to whether the case will be paused or not.

As always, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
