The order has prohibited evictions for non-payment of rent due to COVID-related financial hardship from Sept. 4, 2020 through the end of the year. Many questions have developed from this order such as can eviction filings take place at all, can a housing provider question the validity of a tenant’s ability to pay rent, and is there any federal rent relief available to tenants to name a few.
