The looming risk of an explosion in eviction filings remains ever-present, and state and local courts across the country have begun planning for what happens when their local regulations and/or the CDC moratorium expire.
The RRT’s Eviction Diversion Lab invites you to a policy briefing with officials from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) who will offer insights about and answer questions concerning a recent Interim Rule issued in support of the CDC’s eviction moratorium. This Interim Rule requires debt collectors to provide written notice to tenants of their right under the eviction moratorium and provides other protections, as well as penalties for landlords who do not comply. Register for the briefing here.
