The CDC Eviction Moratorium Set to Expire the End of This Month

Federal help for renters to stay in their homes during the pandemic is ending. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention enacted its eviction moratorium, which prevented the eviction of tenants who were unable to make monthly rental payments. The moratorium is set to expire July 31st for the last time. This will give landlords the greenlight to be able to evict renters even if COVID-19 is keeping them behind on rent. According to the Knox County Clerk’s Office, eviction notices have dropped substantially in recent years.

Officials say renters should first call their landlord to try and work out a payment plan to avoid being evicted. They say to consider a personal loan, look to investments or turn to state and locally funded housing programs to avoid an eviction. There’s still time to apply for emergency renters’ assistance through the City of Knoxville. However, it could take a month to process. Renters have until July 31st to file a CDC declaration form that could protect you from eviction.
