expiration dates of moratoriums

The CARES Act, passed by Congress on March 27th, included language that prevented landlords from evicting tenants in any housing that receives government subsidies or federally backed loans until July 25. 
 
Note the key words here: government subsidies or federally backed loans.
 
According to the National Housing Law Project, over 70% of all US mortgages are federally backed or owned. 
 
Because the CARES Act didn't protect the other 30% of rental units, many states and cities enacted their own eviction moratoriums. Some of these bans have already ended. Other states never enacted any additional protections. 

July 25 is just around the corner. So many states, or cities in them, are extending or enacting their own moratoriums to prevent an avalanche of evictions. 

This list includes key dates related to eviction moratoriums in each state and their most populous cities. We will update it regularly.

Having a lawyer represent you in eviction proceedings can mean the difference between moving and staying in your home (not to mention avoiding major damage to your credit score). One study found that in housing courts across the country, 90 % of landlords have a lawyer represent them in court. 90%  of tenants, however, do not. As a result, tenants usually lose. When tenants represent themselves in New York City, they are evicted in nearly 50 percent of cases. With a lawyer, they win 90 percent of the time.
