Landlords: Eviction moratorium will have lasting effects on tenants, neighborhoods
Rochester, N.Y. — New York has extended eviction protections for tenants through January.
Yet there’s a gaping hole involving landlords.
Some are now falling behind in property taxes and that could ultimately fall back on the people who rent from them – and on the neighborhoods.
“I don’t make enough to subsidize city rental properties,” said Rich Tyson.
Tyson is a Realtor who wanted to do more to invest in Rochester neighborhoods, so he became a landlord. Gradually, over five years, he acquired and refurbished 37 properties.
Then came the notices in the mail.
“These are what I’m starting to get, which are back taxes,” he told 13WHAM.
