The US Supreme Court has struck down New York's eviction law. CEEFPA allowed renters to self-certify that they suffered hardship during the pandemic. This ruling will allow housing court cases to proceed even if a hardship was filed, this should also take away any pre-petition requirements but further explanation is required at this time. But hold on don't think that this will immediately start evictions, New York tenants still have some protection. TSHA is The Tenant Safe Harbor Act, this prevents evictions of any tenant based on the arrears they accrued during Covid-19. Additionally any tenant that applies for CERAP is protected while their case is pending. In conclusion, any pre-pandemic cases and post-pandemic cases can now proceed, although New York State Lawmakers could potentially still come back and pass a new eviction moratorium.
