CDC Issues Eviction Moratorium; NAR Opposes

September 9, 2020

This moratorium applies to all rental units. For a renter to be eligible for relief, they must self-certify under penalty of perjury that they meet the following criteria:

  • Have used best efforts to obtain all available government assistance for rent or housing;
  • Expect to earn no more than $99k (individual) or $198k (joint) in 2020; OR was not required to report income in 2019; OR received an Economic Impact Payment from the CARES Act;
  • Are unable to pay the full rent or housing payment due to substantial loss of household income, loss of hours, lay-off, or extraordinary medical expenses;
  • Are using best efforts to make timely partial payments; AND
  • Eviction would likely renter them homeless or force to move into close quarters in congregate or shared living settings due to no other housing options.

NAR has published a summary of the order issued by the CDC. Following the pre-release of the order, NAR issued a statement, that the order would "bring chaos to our nation’s critical rental housing sector and put countless property owners out of business.” In addition, NAR joined with our industry partners to urge Congress to pass immediate rental assistance.

More action is coming on this issue. NAR will fight to protect our nation's more than 48 million rental units and their property owners.
