The National Real Estate Investors Association recently held an online discussion to help make sense of the new federal eviction moratorium issued by the CDC in early September. National REIA hosted two prominent real estate attorneys (Jeffery S. Watson and Jeffery Greenberger) along with NREIA’s Charles Tassell where they came up with 7 important insights about these new rules. Trade publication Rental Housing Journal recently summarized the discussion as well as the important points to help landlords and property managers better understand how to best deal with this new federal eviction moratorium.
“We have gone from unprecedented to crazy,” Watson said. “What concerns me the most is that this is now creating precedent for future administrations, future agencies, to use this as a rationale, to stop all sorts of economic commerce across the United States of America, any particular form of commerce, any type of interaction, any type of business agreement, (or) consumer agreement that they don’t like.”
