Administrative Order [COVID-19]

During this unprecedented crisis, governmental mandates are ever-changing and we want to keep you apprised of the most current directives and orders concerning the New York Courts.

As per the  administrative order from the chief administrative judge, the courts are no longer accepting any non-emergency papers for filing – that means that nonpayment or holdover proceedings may not be commenced against defaulting tenants.  That does not mean, however, that landlords cannot inform tenants when they are in default of their lease – whether it be for nonpayment or a non-monetary breach, such as nuisance conduct like smoking or excessive noise.
