|Federal Register Notice explaining CDC Order providing a moratorium on evictions for non-payment of rent and other fees|
CDC Eviction Moratorium Extension Order
CDC Eviction Moratorium Declaration
Basically, the draft of the CDC Order indicates that a resident family may be exempt from eviction, for non-payment of rent and other fees. To invoke the CDC’s Order, residents must provide an executed copy of the Declaration Form (or a similar declaration under penalty of perjury) to their landlord, owner of the residential property where they live, or other person who has a right to have them evicted or removed from where they live. The CDC provides a form, but owner/agents may create their own form. If you use the CDC version, please keep in mind that this is an OMB form and should not be modified. Each adult listed on the lease, rental agreement, or housing contract should complete and provide a Declaration.
