Mayor Noble Calls
for Freeze on Rent Increases
NY – Mayor Steve Noble’s statement regarding his call for a freeze on rent
increases in the City of Kingston:
am calling on Kingston landlords to freeze all rent hikes, and I encourage all
landlords to have flexibility with your tenants during this difficult time.
Many Kingstonians are having their livelihoods disrupted by this crisis, so I
call on your assistance to help our fellow community members as they may have
difficulty paying rent and I hope that you will consider delaying rent payments
for those negatively impacted.
addition, Governor Cuomo announced that mortgage payments can be delayed up to
90 days based on financial hardship. This means that landlords who have a
mortgage will be able to pass that financial support to their tenants who are
out of work.”
