NYS Mortgages Waived for 90 Days

On Thursday, March 19, 2020, Governor Cuomo announced that banks in New York State will waive mortgage payments for 90 days and suspend foreclosures[1]. The waivers will be dependent on financial hardship (those affected by the outbreak, including but not limited to layoffs)[2]. Fees involved with late payments and overdraft on ATM and credit cards will be ignored by banks.
