Legislative Updates - CDC National Eviction Moratorium

(more information under the RESOURCES TAB above) 

Update 10/6/2020

Settlement Program Offers Alternative to Eviction 

Article by the Indiana Lawyer. 

Elizabeth Sickles, President of INstateREIA, talks about how most landlords and housing providers WANT to work with their renters, and ARE working with the renters who are willing to work with them.

“Landlords want to do everything they can to keep good tenants in their properties,” Maora Sickels said. “If the tenants are even halfway willing to try to work something out, the landlords definitely want to help them.”

Update 10/6/2020

Eviction Data the Media is Spouting has Little to No Validity

Article by Slate

Most of the numbers that the media is sensationalizing are out of date and/or incomplete. Some data points are based on evictions filed, not evictions finished.  They also do not show which evictions are for lack of payment vs. destruction of property such as running a meth lab in the property.  

"The media uproar over eviction tsunamis hides an increasingly embarrassing fact: We don’t even know how many Americans were evicted in 2019. How, then, are we supposed to help the estimated 30 to 40 million renters who are at risk of being evicted in 2021, when the moratorium lifts?

In short, local policies, differences in institutional capacity, and a lack of standardization across jurisdictions countrywide lead to a frustrating inability to pull together housing loss data in any meaningful way."

UPDATE 9/2/2020 

Effective September 4th, the CDC has issued a 37 page nationwide eviction moratorium through 12/31/2020.

For the full CDC ruling click here: Rules of Federal Moratorium.pdf

Attorneys resoundingly agree that this is 100% unconstitutional 

and a gross over reach by the Federal government on state level issues. 

Here's what you need to know:

  • The plan allows tenants to stop eviction proceedings by providing to the landlord, a "Declaration" (CDC_moratorium_affidavit.docx) which essentially state they earn under $99,000/year (or twice that for jointly filed returns) and that if evicted, their only option is homelessness or living in "closer quarters."
  • This "Declaration" is signed under the penalty of perjury, however, there is no further requirement for proof. Nor is there ability to rebut these declarations as a landlord.
  • The penalties for noncompliance with this order include up to $250,000 fine and one year in jail.
  • Full payment, including fees, penalties, or interest are still fully collectible once this moratorium is lifted.
  • This order does NOT prevent emergency evictions or evictions for lease violations, criminal activity, etc. It only prevents eviction for non-payment of rent.

Message from Steve Eslinger, attorney and landlord: Part 15 - federal moratorium- sent Sept2.pdf and Part 15(b) - federal moratorium update.pdf.


91% of rental income collected goes towards the costs of maintaining the property (mortgages, taxes, insurance, upkeep) and ensuring that safe and quality housing is available to tenants at a fair market value.   If housing providers cannot collect rent, how can we expect them to continue to provide safe  housing to their renters?  National governmental programs that prevent rent collection, end up hurting the tenants in the long run...  inevitable eviction, higher rents for the next tenant, higher deposits.   

72% of all rental properties in Indiana are owned by small mom and pop businesses - people with less than 10 properties.  Most are hard working honest small business people who are a big part of the solution to the age-old dilemma:  not enough affordable homes for sale and for rent to meet the growing demands.

There are an estimated 2.2million real estate investors in the USALocally 25% of our members are female.  35% are minority and 1/3 of our members are licensed Realtors.

Join us for 15-20 meetings and classes every month to better understand the multiple ways to buy a property - finance a property - improve a property - sell or lease a property.
