Renters Lose Covid-19 Protections

(Farmington) The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security CARES Act prevented landlords from taking eviction actions against renters who were unable to pay rent on certain federally backed programs, including the housing choice voucher program.

The CARES act also prohibited charging fees, penalties and other charges to those tenants due to nonpayment.

Luke Turnbough says unfortunately these protections for renters have expired and were not renewed by the federal government.
