Update, Sept. 16, 2020: On Sept. 4, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an order that protects most renters from eviction for nonpayment of rent through Dec. 31, 2020. You can find out more about whether you qualify and how to protect yourself by checking the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s website. If you have an eviction pending that was filed against you between March 27 and July 24, you can still check below to see if you may be protected by a previous federal eviction ban.
The federal government has ordered a halt to all evictions until July 25 against tenants who can’t pay their rent in properties that have federally backed loans or that participate in certain programs. After that, landlords have to give 30 days notice to vacate, so you may be protected from legal action until August 25. Use this database to search apartment buildings nationwide to find out if your rental unit may qualify for eviction protection. Related story → | About this database →
When State Eviction Protections Expire
State and local governments have assembled a patchwork of eviction protection rules, meaning some renters may face the threat of eviction sooner than others as reopening begins.
Sources: Comprehensive data on federally assisted rental housing in the U.S. was taken from a database compiled by the National Low Income Housing Coalition and the Public and Affordable Housing Research Corporation. Multifamily loan data was collected from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration. Additional information was drawn from state-by-state eviction moratorium research led by Columbia Law School professor Emily A. Benfer. For more details, read our post.
