You Must Provide
To invoke the CDC's order, all adult occupants (not just tenants) must provide a signed copy of the following Declaration form to their landlord.
It is recommend that you send a copy of this signed declaration to your landlord by certified mail, return receipt requested as well as by email. Keep a copy for your record.
Please read all 7 declarations and confirm that you are making truthful statements before signing. This document does not need to notarized.
The federal government announced a nationwide eviction moratorium Tuesday that is designed to protect renters from losing their homes until the end of the year.
Tenants will have to provide declarations to their landlords stating that they meet all the requirements in the order, including that they fall within the income limit and that they tried to get any available government assistance for rent or housing. They will also have to state that they have been unable to pay rent due to loss of income, work or health expenses, and that they might be at risk of homelessness or doubling up if they are evicted.
Finally, renters will have to state that they are using their “best efforts” to pay rent on time. Tenants can face criminal charges for false statements in their documents.
You cannot be evicted, if you qualified for a stimulus check and you are unable to afford rent because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Print your CDC Declaration here. Make sure you give a copy to the landlord and file another copy with the Court.
