In a series of directives from Judge Anthony Cannataro, the Administrative Judge of the Civil Court of the City of New York issued on June 12, 2020, as well as an announcement by Judge Jean T. Schneider, Citywide Administrative Judge of the New York City Civil Court, effective June 22, 2020, owners will be permitted, upon the expiration of the appropriate notices (Rent Demands, Notice To Cure, Notice of Termination, etc.) to file new eviction proceedings in the New York City Civil Court, including certain non-payment cases and all holdover proceedings.

We recommend contacting an attorney in the Litigation Department at Belkin Burden Goldman, LLP to discuss the possibility of commencing a new case and the procedural steps that need to be undertaken.
