Inside this issue
  New Eviction Moratorium extension from CDC runs through Oct. 3  
 

NAR evaluating all legal options; Immediate recourse from Supreme Court is unavailable

The National Association of REALTORS┬« held a webinar today discussing the new CDC Eviction Moratorium. As you may have heard, on August 3, 2021, the CDC issued an order reinstating the Eviction Moratorium, stating that evictions of tenants for failure to make payments could be detrimental to the control measures currently in place to help slow the spread of COVID-19. This order only applies to those counties experiencing high levels of community transmission as determined by the CDC and expires on October 3, 2021. Every two weeks, the CDC will determine if a particular county has a high level of transmission and apply the moratorium or lift the moratorium in that county if, at that time, the county is classified as having a low level of transmission. This moratorium gives tenants additional time for rental relief to reach those renters and to further increase vaccination rates.     

Local courts will have to figure out the mechanics of this order that may turn off and on every two weeks. NVR is working with local courts to obtain guidance on the application of this order and will update you when we receive more information. State and local governments still have the ability to issue their own order extending the eviction moratorium even where the CDC order does not apply. 

The National Association of REALTORS┬« is looking at all legal options available at this time but wants our members to understand that an immediate appeal to the Supreme Court is not available. States like Georgia and Alabama involved in the litigation already at the Supreme Court level, will have to go back through the lower court in order to protect all legal remedies. 

NAR is providing resources to our members by advising them to text "Evictions" to 30644. Remember also that Nevada REALTORS┬« through AB 486 created a landlord relief program that is available through Home Means Nevada. (www.homemnv.org) We will update you as more information becomes available and encourage you to provide rental assistance information to your tenants and landlords.
