Eviction Moratoriums Are Ending Across the Country

Eviction Moratoriums Are Ending Across the Country

 | 
Although COVID-19 rates are declining, the pandemic isn't over. 

But many states and cities are ending their moratoriums on evictions - which were originally issued to protect those who couldn't pay rent due to COVID-19 related issues - anyway.

Federal protections have also ended. 

The United States Supreme Court also ruled in late August that eviction moratoriums weren't legal. The majority concluded that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) which is responsible nationally for the public’s health, had exceeded its statutory authority by issuing the moratorium.

But if you have been served eviction papers, or fear you will be soon, don't start packing yet.

You have a few options:

Apply for rental assistance

The federal government has set aside
 $46.5 billion to give to those who need rental assistance.

The Treasury Department Treasury department has said  420,000 households received rental help between January and August.


You must apply through your state's program. You can find applications and information about applying here

Get a lawyer's help

At a time when money is tight, you may be worried about spending money on a lawyer.

But when tenants go into eviction court with a lawyer by their sides, they win 90% of the time. 

It's probably not as expensive as you may be imagining. 

The cost will depend on where you live, the complexity of the case and how much legal help you want.
