New Eviction Protection For Borrowers Struggling Due To COVID-19 from the CDC

On 9-4-2020 The CDC issued a Temporary Halt in Residential Evictions to Prevent the Further Spread of COVID-19. This order is a temporary eviction moratorium to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. This order does not relieve any individual of any obligation to pay rent, make a housing payment, or comply with any other obligation that the individual may have under a tenancy, lease, or similar contract. Nothing in the order precludes the charging or collecting of fees, penalties, or interest as a result of the failure to pay rent or other housing payment on a timely basis, under the terms of any applicable contract. In order for your landlord to follow this guidance each person on the lease (18 years old or above) must sign the attached form and date it and either hand deliver to the landlord or mail it to the landlord. I have attached the form in English, Spanish, French and Vietnamize.

This moratorium will remain in effect until December 31st 2020.
