CDC Eviction Moratorium will be ending on July 31st following an order from CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky. The CDC first issued the moratorium back in September of 2020 to keep people in their homes and out of crowded settings by preventing evictions, which the CDC felt would help stop the spread of COVID-19. Since the CDC order was issued, IREM has advocated, along with our housing coalition partners, to end the moratorium as it placed unsustainable restrictions on property operations. Now that the moratorium is concluding, property managers will need assistance on what the rules are now and best practices to follow now that the moratorium is over. This webinar will address what property managers need to know, such as: 

  • Creating a payment plan for residents for back rent
  • How to begin the eviction process
  • Accessing the courts
