Eviction Resolution Program


The eviction moratorium has been extended through March 2021. Some important facts to note: 

  • You still must pay rent eventually. 
  • Under the eviction moratorium, landlords can't increase residential rents and are expected to offer tenants a repayment plan. Landlords also can't charge late fees under the moratorium. 
  • People can still be evicted for other reasons, such as property damage or criminal behavior.
  • You cannot be evicted during the crisis unless you are causing a threat, or your landlord wants to sell or move into the property.
  • The proclamation bans retaliation against tenants and creates a legal defense for tenant lawsuits.
