Eviction Bans Expire, BUT...
August 4, 2020
A moratorium on evictions expired on July 25th; however, local governments are preparing to delay the process.
According to the CARES Act, property owners with federally backed mortgages, who currently have renters, can begin the eviction process now that the July 25th deadline has passed. Cities and counties are individually extending the process. Most cities and counties in the metro area are delaying a property owner’s ability to process evictions.
Cobb County Court issued a statement saying they will not process any evictions until "sometime in August." Fulton County Court said they would not process evictions until they can safely open to the public, which is expected in September/October.
This delay in processing will create a significant backlog of cases once the process is open again. The real estate industry is currently working with elected officials to help property owners maintain their properties and help renters stay current on rent. Stay tuned for more information.
