Unable to Pay Rent? Eviction

As COVID-19 continues to have and make an economic impact, we wanted to share some general guidance in reference to evictions since this has become a central point for millions nationwide and some protections have expired or expire soon.⁣⁣
NOTE: This is general guidance is not meant as legal advice or its substitute.⁣⁣
Firstly, there are legal steps that must be taken for a legal eviction to take place. “Self-help” evictions are illegal!!⁣⁣
For a tenant to be removed, a court order is required. ⁣⁣
However there may be possible defenses for tenants either on the procedural side or substantive. ⁣⁣
As for eviction protections, at the federal level, the CARES Act enacted a 120-day moratorium on federally-backed housing. More information can be found at:⁣⁣
