Cleveland Eviction Moratorium Could End Sooner Than Expected - CMBA News and Information

From Cleveland.com: The Cleveland Housing Court has warned tenants facing eviction for not paying their rent due to the coronavirus pandemic that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s moratorium on such evictions could soon end. The warning came on the heels of a federal judge’s determination that the CDC lacked the power to undertake such a sweeping directive.

The housing court, which handles nearly half of all eviction cases in Cuyahoga County each year, said in a news release Thursday that it will continue to accept declarations required under the eviction moratorium the federal government first enacted in September. The moratorium bars the eviction of tenants for not paying rent if the reason was related to the pandemic. Renters facing that hardship must attest to that and other steps they took in a declaration.
