The coronavirus outbreak has been dragging on in the U.S. for almost two months at this point. To respond to the financial crisis that is resulting from COVID-19, state and local governments across the country began implementing a variety of policies to keep people from losing their homes. The most common of these policies are eviction and foreclosure moratoriums. Other states simply closed their courts, meaning that eviction cases have effectively ground to a halt. And still, other states have opted to take a largely hands-off approach.
The Inman Group posted a breakdown of the policies that each state has enacted. They say the list isn’t entirely comprehensive because in some states, such as California, a multitude of cities have rolled out their own policies. Hopefully, that is a good place to start.
