Landlord Tenant Law - CARES Act Evictions Resume Aug. 24
As many as 40% of US renters are at risk of losing their homes if the federal eviction moratorium established by the CARES Act is not extended or renewed, according to Statista. The CARES Act's eviction safeguards expired July 25 and is thought to have helped as many as 23 million US families stay in their homes. Eviction notices are now legally allowed to proceed and evictions can begin starting Aug. 24.
The CARES Act federally suspended evictions and late fees until July 25. The Act required a 30-day notice to vacate before eviction.
If your rental is covered by the CARES Act, landlords can now legally ask you to leave and start charging late fees, but the soonest they can legally file an eviction is August 24, 2020. If Congress passes an extension or renewal of the eviction ban before August 24, 2020, tenants may temporarily able to remain in their homes. The CARES Act protected only about one-third of rental properties in the US: specifically, those that received federal funds or were financed under a federal program like Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. It isn't clear if Congress will broaden the scope of properties covered under law.
