Since the onset of COVID-19, many states and municipalities have passed a patchwork of eviction moratoriums aimed at providing rent relief to residential and commercial tenants. This episode discusses common misconceptions and important nuances of the eviction moratorium, including:

  • What exactly does an eviction moratorium do? Hint: it doesn't forgive rent.
  • Do eviction moratoriums apply to commercial tenants or just residential tenants?
  • Do eviction moratoriums block eviction lawsuits from proceeding? What are the important criteria for proving COVID-19 related hardship?
  • Will eviction moratoriums be extended through 2021?

In this podcast we reference the CREF State Eviction Moratorium Tracker produced by the Mortgage Bankers Association.
