One eviction moratorium ends and another quickly begins. Recently, the nationwide eviction moratorium finally hit its finale, freeing up many landlords to begin the process to usher out misbehaving tenants and begin their searches for new and better ones. However, almost immediately, the Biden Administration ushered in a new moratorium to cover its tracks.

One eviction moratorium ends and another quickly begins. Recently, the nationwide eviction moratorium finally hit its finale, freeing up many landlords to begin the process to usher out misbehaving tenants and begin their searches for new and better ones. However, almost immediately, the Biden Administration ushered in a new moratorium to cover its tracks.

The new eviction moratorium is not a nationwide one, however, which may bring comfort to some. Instead of covering everyone from sea to shining sea, the latest bill focuses on the harder hit cities across America where many are still struggling in the wake of the pandemic, meaning that while some landlords can begin their proceedings, many can’t.

The major nationwide block lapsed at the end of July but it was quickly rounded by a new order that will run until early October. Biden’s latest ruling faced some backlash, especially from landlords.

In New York, landlords felt they had “no legal recourse” but to fight back against the declaration and their Supreme Court followed through. Because of the court orders, evictions in the area may proceed, though the rate at which they may go through is yet to be determined.

That isn’t the end. Despite the end of the official nationwide moratorium on July 31st, many states have their own moratoriums that should each be considered. New Jersey has their own ban that is up and running, though after New York’s similarly styled plan was knocked a few pegs down, it calls the Jersey ban into question. California continues to have holds on until the end of September.

There are several rules for the new federal eviction moratorium that will last until October. As expected, it only effects those in high-risk areas and tenants who are at high risk. This includes:

  • The renter has tried to obtain governmental assistance for rent or housing
  • The renter earned no more than $99,000, or $198,000 if filing jointly, in 2020 or does not expect to in 2021
  • The renter is unable to pay the full rent due to loss of household income or out-of-pocket medical expenses
  • If an eviction would result in homelessness or force the renter to reside in close quarters in a shared living setting
  • The renter lives in a county experiencing a high rate of infection.

While the latest eviction moratorium isn’t as terrifying as the ones before it, most likely this one will not be the end. Many see it as a band aid solution or even as an aggravation to a problem growing in the United States. Subscribe to keep informed as we continue to watch to see how this band aid or aggravation will progress, and hopefully watch as courts turn more towards landlords’ favor.
