UPDATED GUIDANCE REGARDING THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL (CDC) ORDER

What is the CDC Order Update and what is the effect?

Effective  January  31,  2021,  the  Centers  for  Disease  Control  and  Prevention  (CDC)  Eviction  Moratorium will be extended through and including March 31, 2021. The key points are as follows:

  1. A landlord is not prohibited from filing an eviction action, even if the  landlord receives a  CDC Declaration.
     
  2. A landlord is only prohibited from enforcing a writ of possession until after March 31, 2021 (or the date of the expiration of the CDC Order)
     
  3. The  CDC  Order  does  not  prohibit  the  filing  or  the  enforcing  of  evictions  for  reasons  other  than nonpayment of rent (lease violations, non-renewals, etc.)

Landlords can GET IN LINE by filing eviction actions upon default. This will allow landlords to be better positioned to enforce writs of possession as soon as the Order expires, rather than waiting (potentially months) for a court date due to the anticipated backlog of evictions that will have built up during the course of the CDC Order’s enforcement period.
