Escrow? (by Carl [NY]) Posted on: Sep 16, 2020 5:42 PM

Before the pandemic we had a tenant that was behind in rent and would not respond. We started eviction and then the Covid rules hit.

Covid has not effect his employment, so do you know if in NYS there is a requirement to escrow back rent?

they donít have to pay anything into anything. pls donít move to TX to escape the laws you voted for or allowed to to be voted in by politicians you voted for or did not vote for. My TX property tax appraisals are being killed by CA & NY transplants.

If you tenant wasn't paying rent before the pandemic and you started an eviction, you should consult with your local eviction attorney.. they should know all of the current rules, codes and laws.

There was a thread in the last couple of weeks that had a link to a recorded video from a couple of lawyers on the CDC eviction moratorium. One of their recommendations was to go to small claims court for back rent and then go after garnishments or account sweeping if they serve you with the CDC affidavit, which doesn't sound like has happened to you yet. As to whether your courts are open and allowing evictions where they haven't given the affidavit, I would consult with an attorney to see your options.

If they didn't make it to court then there is no escrow. If they went before a judge and agreed to pay to stay then there should be escrow. My court was supposed to open 9/4 but I have not heard from the process server w an update. I also had started the process and was supposed to have a hearing at the beginning of April. These tenants trickle in some funds because they think I'll keep them. They could have paid everything w covid unemployment.

Turn a peice of notebook paper sideways and begin when the last full rent payment was made and add up what the current rent bill looks like, send a copy of this and yell at the manager for not acting quicker on the old balance.
