NYC’s Rising Evictions

Posted by Jordan Tapia | Jan 23, 2023 | 0 Comments

According to NBC, New York City's eviction rate is rising, triggered by the January 2022 expiration of moratorium, protections, and rent relief programs for tenants brought on by the pandemic.

Some programs like ERAP stopped taking applications which means evictions are going to increase.

The numbers speak for themselves: on January 12th, sheriffs executed more than 50 evictions in a single day and across the five boroughs. Nearly 4,400 families and tenants have been evicted since the eviction ban was lifted.

Despite hard times due to high rents and the stoppage of the rental assistance program, the pandemic has given way to a new set of protections. A study in New Orleans found that more than 65% of tenants without legal representation were evicted, compared to just 15% who had a lawyer with them at the hearing, which is why getting a lawyer is so important for these cases.
