COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act of 2020 is Now Law

 When a tenant has not paid rent for any period between March 1, 2020, and January 31, 2021, the COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act of 2020 ("Rent Relief Law") will allow most residential tenants to remain in the rental property through January of 2021 as long as the tenant makes a declaration under penalty of perjury that they are unable to pay their rent or meet other financial obligations because of circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

New Federal Eviction Moratorium

Yesterday, the CDC and White House unveiled an executive order halting virtually all evictions nationwide through the end of the year. NAR issued a strong response last night urging Congress to pass immediate legislation that would provide emergency rental assistance to housing providers.  This Order does not apply in any State, local, territorial, or tribal area with a moratorium on residential evictions that provides the same or greater level of public-health protection than the requirements listed in this Order.

 

This afternoon, NAR released a summary of the new federal eviction moratorium and are working with coalition partners to continue applying pressure on Congress.
