Help for Tenants Facing Eviction
If you are facing eviction because you cannot pay the rent, you must take action in order to get protection under the CDC’s eviction moratorium!
If you believe you are eligible for the moratorium and have already received an eviction notice, you should file a declaration form with the court where your case has been filed. You must also provide a copy to your landlord.
If you are behind in rent, but have not yet received an eviction notice, you should still fill out the declaration form and send a copy to your landlord.
Please Note: You will still be required to pay all the rent you owe when the moratorium is lifted, which is currently scheduled for Jan. 1, 2021.
