Attention Landlords and Tenants

CDC Order Temporarily Halts Certain Residential Evictions

Effective through March 31, 2021

In response to the community spread of the COVID19 virus, a moratorium on residential evictions for non-payment of rent was issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) effective September 4, 2020. You may read the full CDC order, and information about the order, including a link to a tenant affidavit, by clicking on the links below. Please note that the expiration date on the tenant affidavit has been extended until March 31, 2021

PLEASE NOTE: A landlord may still file an eviction action in this court. The Summons and Notice of First Claim Hearing will then be issued by the Clerk per normal procedures. At the First Claim Hearing the Court will take testimony from the tenant(s) under oath to determine if the CDC moratorium criteria are met; if the criteria are not met then the complaint for eviction will proceed to trial on that hearing date.

Landlords and tenants are strongly advised to seek legal advice regarding the requirements and applicability of the CDC moratorium order.
