Consumer Watchdog Group Issues Policy to Strengthen National Eviction Moratorium -

"Since the eviction moratorium has been in effect, housing advocates and renters have said a lack of enforcement has led to landlords ignoring the law and pushing out tenants anyway."

Why this is important: The Center for Disease Control eviction order precludes a landlord, owner of residential property, or any entity that owns residential property from evicting a tenant in any jurisdiction for non-payment of rent. The CDC order does not cover foreclosure of a home mortgage or preclude evictions unrelated to non-payment of rent. Attorneys for landlords and other debt collectors who wrongly evict tenants also could face federal and state prosecution according to the CFPB. In addition, these debt collectors now must provide tenants notice of their rights under the eviction ban in writing and on the same date an eviction notice is served. The announcement is a sign that the Biden administration plans to more aggressively enforce the CDC national ban on evictions first issued by the Trump administration in September.
