FOXBusiness is reporting that the Biden administration has extended the CDC’s federal pause on evictions by one month through the end of July. They are also reporting that the CDC said “This is intended to be the final extension of the moratorium.” Indeed…..this story is developing…stay tuned.
“The extension of the CDC Eviction Moratorium requires a response from the Judicial Branch. No matter how much the country improves, vaccinations rates improve, unemployment rates drop, rental assistance spreads to those who need it, the agenda of some is to cancel rent, ban evictions by fiat and damage rental property owners beyond repair. How many extensions are needed? Supposedly this is the last, but the Judicial Branch needs to ensure that this type of over-reach does not occur again.” Said Charles Tassell, COO of National REIA.
Listed below is the official media release from the CDC:
Temporary Halt in Residential Evictions to Prevent the Further Spread of COVID-19
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has signed an extension to the eviction moratorium further preventing the eviction of tenants who are unable to make rental payments. The moratorium that was scheduled to expire on June 30, 2021 is now extended through July 31, 2021 and this is intended to be the final extension of the moratorium.
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a historic threat to the nation’s public health. Keeping people in their homes and out of crowded or congregate settings — like homeless shelters — by preventing evictions is a key step in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19.
