2020 Landlord Summit

The City hosted the 2nd annual Landlord Summit on August 20th. The summit was held via Zoom Webinar due to the ban on large gatherings. The Summit agenda was focused on the impacts of COVID-19 on tenants and landlords. Speakers updated attendees on the latest data about the impacts on rental payments, provided guidance on the eviction laws and moratoriums, and shared information on financial resources and programs to assist Landlords and tenants. The City also shared information on temporary code inspection protocols, and solicited feedback on two upcoming policies that will impact property owners and property managers

PLEASE NOTE: New York State has issued an eviction moratorium that will be in place until May 1st. This pertains to individuals who were negatively impacted economically by the COVID-19 pandemic. Tenants must provide a hardship declaration form to the Landlord.
