On March 29, 2021, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) extended the nationwide eviction moratorium through June 30, 2021. The CDC has now extended the eviction moratorium through July 31, 2021. The press release announcing the extension states that “this is intended to be the final extension of the moratorium.”

 

As noted on the CDC website: “CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has signed an extension to the eviction moratorium further preventing the eviction of tenants who are unable to make rental payments…The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a historic threat to the nation’s public health. Keeping people in their homes and out of crowded or congregate settings — like homeless shelters — by preventing evictions is a key step in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19.”

Legal Resource

Federal, state, and local emergency protections do not release tenants from their obligation to pay rent. Our law firm can assist landlords by preparing the appropriate termination notices for their property in compliance with Executive Orders, local ordinances, the CARES Act, and the CDC order.

KSN attorneys are familiar with the latest regulations to avoid technical defects that could otherwise result in possible dismissal of eviction cases.
