A recent order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) prohibits evictions due to an inability to pay – under certain circumstances. The Suffolk University Law School has created an interactive questionnaire to help people decide whether they qualify under the federal guidelines. It also generates a declaration that you can share with your landlord.
To qualify, you must be under a certain income limit, be unable to pay housing costs due to a substantial loss of income, and not have a suitable housing alternative.
While most of the interactive forms are specific to Massachusetts state courts, the protections afforded by the CDC order apply nationally – including here in Washington State.
To see if you qualify, access the Eviction Moratorium Assistant HERE.
