The End of the Eviction Restriction, August 1st, 2020.
On July 6, the Superior Court of Justice order that had suspended all residential evictions was amended. It now states that the suspension will end at the end of July, 2020, in which the state of emergency is terminated.
What that means for landlords is this: the sheriff will be back in business enforcing all of those eviction orders that landlords have not been able to act on for months.
To be clear, only the orders that have already been issued by the Landlord and Tenant Board can now be enforced. The Board has not reopened and no regular hearings are being scheduled or rescheduled yet.
So if you are a landlord and you have an order to terminate a tenancy and your tenant has not complied with the order, starting August 1st, 2020, you will be able to take that order to your local court enforcement office and request enforcement by the sheriff!
