Before we begin, I want to acknowledge that the eviction moratorium has not been flawless. Some people have still been evicted, either because landlords have found loopholes, judges ignored the ban on evictions, or tenants didn’t know how to use this moratorium to protect themselves. Since the moratorium required renters to sign declarations and meet other requirements, some landlords even threatened their tenants with perjury charges in order to evict them.
However, for the millions of households that have been protected by this moratorium, the dark day of reckoning is coming… and the question we keep getting asked is, “What do I do when the eviction moratorium ends?”
Fortunately, we’ve found a few resources that can help.
FIRST, see if you are protected in any way.
There are many different organizations and layers of government that are enacting protections for tenants. It is important to see if you are protected in any way, shape or form from eviction.
For example, the federal government’s ban on evictions has recently been extended to the end of January 2021. However, Governor Inslee has extended the eviction ban in Washington State until the end of March. As of the time that I created this video, there are a few other states that have extended their eviction bans as well.
