In early Sept., the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued an eviction moratorium order effective Sept. 4, 2020, through Dec. 31, 2020. The CDC anticipates that as many as 40 million renters nationwide could utilize the protections granted by the order. The order requires a tenant seeking eviction protection under the Order to provide a declaration to a landlord which contains specific eligibility requirements for tenants. This eviction moratorium is greater in scope than previous COVID related moratoriums issued on a local, state or federal levels.
The Indiana Supreme Court’s Landlord Tenant Task Force has issued a Frequently Asked Questions Document and a checklist for Indiana Courts to utilize during the effective dates of the order. Those documents can be found here.
