COVID-19 Renter Protections

There is a ton of confusion around renter protections during COVID-19. Several counties and cities, along with states, have their own rules. We've made a small attempt to gather some of the resources that have been made available state, county, and city wide. It's not every thing though.

Eviction Protection

Useful definitions:

  • Paused: Court proceedings for evictions are not active.
  • Suspended: Enforcement of evictions are not active.
  • Delayed: New cases deferred.
