Did you know... October 12, 2020


That during the governor’s press briefing on Thursday, he announced that the eviction moratorium will be extended to the end of the year?  The specifics of the next (#5) eviction proclamation will be given on Monday, October 12th

Tenants cannot be evicted for non-payment of rent, but rent does continue accruing.  While there are a variety of federal, state and local programs to assist tenants, those programs are not able to meet demand.  Tenants who are unable to pay rent can’t be evicted, but they are unlikely to be able to pay for multiple months of  back rent once the moratorium is lifted. If landlords and tenants can’t negotiate a settlement/payment plan, many tenants will lose their housing and landlords will be unlikely to ever recover the lost rental income.
