New York has been under an eviction moratorium for nearly nine months — and there’s no end in sight.

For tenants struggling to keep up with rent, that’s good news. For landlords … no.

Residential is a different story altogether. Landlord attorney Adam Leitman Bailey explains it all in the video above.
