    Residential evictions begin as city braces for possible wave

    Brian Sharp, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Published 5:01 a.m. ET Oct. 19, 2020

    A backlog of evictions placed on hold during the pandemic have begun moving forward, with the first orders for tenants to vacate taking effect in the past 24 to 48 hours.

    This is the early stages of what housing advocates fear will be a wave of evictions.
    In the city, where 60% of the housing stock is rental, there is particular concern. The extent of the problem is hard to know. City Hall estimates have varied from 4,500 households being behind on rent, to as many as 8,800 or more.
    Members of Rochester's City-wide Tenant Union and other advocacy groups on Friday called on state and local leaders to reinstate a moratorium and work out a long-term solution for renters and landlords.

    What exists today is a patchwork of government-funded local efforts to provide tenants with legal counsel, money for back rent, and streamline court proceedings to help direct people to support services. More long-term actions are pending in the state Legislature.
    "We need some sort of policy solution," said tenant union representative Ryan Acuff, though at this point: "It's a catch-up game, because all of a sudden things are just now moving really fast."
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo extended tenant protections under the Safe Harbor Act through Jan. 1. But while extension was promoted as a moratorium extension, what it really did was allow tenants to cite financial hardship as a viable defense to eviction. It does not, officials say, prohibit eviction filings. Or protect renters whose landlords who decide not to renew a tenant's lease, a so-called no-fault eviction.

    The state-ordered moratorium expired on or about Oct. 1.

    Mayor Lovely Warren could step in and pause evictions in the city. A spokesman was not immediately able to say whether that was under consideration.
    There were anywhere from 500 to 600 evictions cases put on hold when the courts shutdown because of the pandemic back in March. Those are the cases that have moved forward first. There also have been more than a dozen new cases filed since courts reopened, officials said.

    Step 1. Evict most tenants from apartment buildings
    Step 2. Evicted tenants begin squatting in nearby vacant houses
    Step 3. Adverse possession eventually turns squatters into legal residents
    Step 4. Housing crisis solved!

    Bull$#@!!

    "Policy" brought this mess in the first place.

    Get government out of housing.

    So who would move into the homes where others were evicted?

    Sounds to me like a losing situation for the landlord to evict at this time.
    They should make a deal with the tenants as to paying the rent late, when the tenants finally start getting paid again.

    I ASSume that these people being evicted are by and large on the dole, subsidized housing etc. so their "income" hasn't been cut, the printing presses are still chugging along spitting out checks drawn on future tax lucre.....These people chose to take advantage of legislation that permitted them to spend their government checks on whatever they wanted instead of rent...Free food, subsidized rent nothing to do but protest and riot...

    Now it's time to pay the piper and the taxpayer is expected to fix it.

    Evict 'em! They'll burn down the building, the landlord will collect insurance and retire comfortably without the headache of dealing with miscreants.

    Way too sensible..

    West coast has prohibited evictions..(and applied Pork) and I expect to see squatters(former renters) living in Foreclosed property soon,,as the Owners are unable to make mortgage payments.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    This is what happens when you put the WHO and CDC in charge of rent and evictions.

    Thus resulting in fewer property owners/investing willing to build or invest in rental properties, thus making them more scare and more expensive.

    Rinse and repeat.
