On September 1, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ordered a halt to certain evictions only under certain specific circumstances through December 31, 2020. It has been all over the news media as an Eviction Moratorium but actually it is NOT really a Moratorium. Only some evictions are impacted and the Resident MUST meet certain criteria and serve a Declaration to you or the court in order to be protected.
If the Resident does serve that Declaration and you file a nonpayment of rent eviction or continue one in progress, there are severe criminal and civil penalties that can be imposed. On top of the CDC Order is the State Executive Order set to expire on October 1 which further complicates matters. Confused yet? It is not as complicated as it appears!
