Breaking News:

Originally set to expire on June 30, 2021, today the CDC announced they have extended their Order preventing the eviction of residents for non-payment of rent through July 31, 2021. The CDC indicated in today's Order that this is intended to be the final extension of the moratorium.

At the time of sending this bulletin, Loebsack & Brownlee has not been in contact with or heard from government officials from North Carolina, South Carolina, or Georgia, but we will let you know when we do and will send additional updates. 

Dear NAA Members,

On June 24, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) extended its Temporary Halt in Residential Evictions to Prevent the Further Spread of COVID-19 through July 31. The CDC Order (“the Order”) keeps the modifications added during the March 28 extension in place, while the core elements of the Order remain the same – the CDC has claimed that this extension will be the last and the federal government must abide by their word and allow the moratorium to expire. In The New York Times, the National Apartment Association (NAA) expressed extreme disappointment that the Administration extended their federal moratorium yet again and recognizes the gravity of this move and vast ramifications it has on rental housing operations.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission also will likely continue their enforcement efforts against housing providers who violate the CDC Order. NAA will continue our fight against these troublesome federal mandates through ongoing engagement with the Biden Administration and Congress and keep members informed as we update our member guidance accordingly.

NAA has staunchly opposed and aggressively advocated against the CDC’s overreaching and destructive Order – we were the first association to file suit against it and we continue to carry the message in the judiciary and onto Capitol Hill. We have deployed both our Washington, D.C. assets and the membership at large to urge Congress and the Administration to end the moratorium, and pushed the same message in top media outlets throughout the nation.  

Further, we continue to pursue all legal options. We are encouraged by the growing legal precedent, built over the foundation of NAA’s initial lawsuit (Sept. 2020), declaring the Order unlawful. NAA is actively participating as plaintiffs and amici in several ongoing cases, and we are also anxiously awaiting a decision from the U.S. Supreme Court that will determine whether protected evictions can resume following a federal judge’s ruling in D.C.  

NAA will keep you abreast of new developments as the situation continues to evolve.

Stay safe and well, 

Robert Pinnegar, CAE
President and CEO
National Apartment Association
