Since the onset of COVID-19 and government shut-down orders, we have faced eviction moratoriums at the Federal, State, and Local level.
Finally, some good news!
Yesterday, a federal judge ruled that the eviction moratorium order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is unconstitutional.
In a 21- Page Ruling, U.S. District Judge John Barker sided with rental housing providers who argued that the CDC’s eviction moratorium exceeded the federal government’s constitutional authority.
Barker wrote, “Although the COVID-19 pandemic persists, so does the Constitution.”
As individual property owners, it isn’t easy to protect ourselves. Together we can defend our rights. The National Apartment Association (NAA) represents us at the federal level, CalRHA at the state level, and your local association fights for you at the city and county levels.
Ultimately, this victory is one step on the road to the Supreme Court. If you would like more information about our legal fight against eviction moratoriums, please let us know, and we will add you to our interest list.
Restoring our rights to enforce a lease is a critical component to continue providing quality housing.
Thank you for standing with us! Although the fight will continue, today we enjoy this victory together.
