The federal eviction moratorium is set to expire on July 31, raising the prospect of many thousands of renters and homeowners potentially being removed from their homes after months of being unable to make payment amid the SARS-Cov-2 crisis.
Yet several states have passed their own eviction moratoriums that extend well past the expiration of the federal measure. Legal publisher Nolo has published a rundown of eviction measures in all 50 states, including which states are offering protection to tenets after the end of this month. Check and see what your state’s rules are here.
Some states, such as California and New Jersey, have eviction moratoriums that last at least months after the end of the federal measure. Many others have no such measures, though they may have in place certain policies such as prohibitions on utility shutoffs.
Nolo notes that legal eviction policy “is changing hourly, and the chart might not reflect all current protections.”
“For the best information about the status of evictions where you live, check your state’s judicial system or governor’s website,” the publisher states.
