Important Update Regarding Eviction Moratorium

The Governor’s eviction moratorium, Proclamation 20-19.6, will end at 11:59 p.m. on June 30, 2021. The State Legislature has passed legislation that provides the legal framework for landlords and tenants concerning evictions and housing related practices after the eviction moratorium. The Governor has provided some interim landlord-tenant protections while the various components of this new legislation are implemented. For more information about Proclamation 21-09, the Governor’s interim landlord-tenant protections, please click here. Our Office will continue to answer questions about Proclamation 21-09 or how it applies to you, to ensure both landlords and tenants understand and comply with the new Proclamation.
