New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has again extended the expiration date of a statewide commercial eviction and foreclosure moratorium until the New Year 2021. This latest extension – now valid until January 1 at the earliest – is the fourth that Cuomo has authorized since the moratorium was first imposed back on March 20 when the coronavirus first made a major impact across the country. It follows a similar extension of the residential eviction and foreclosure ban which he extended last month. While we’re on the subject of New York, it seems timely to advise that last week New York City released its regulations governing the use of natural gas as a power source for outdoor heaters for restaurants serving outdoor dining. The regulations, which are available on the city website here, govern the process of installing and operating the heaters for those restaurants open for outdoor dining in the winter months.
