'Can I be evicted during coronavirus in the US?' (ProPublica, 18 May 2020)

  • In the US, the federal government "ordered a halt to all evictions until July 25 against tenants who can’t pay their rent in properties that have federally backed loans or that participate in certain programs".

  • Because for many tenants it's not obvious whether they are protected or not, ProPublica has put together an interactive tool to find out whether you qualify: https://projects.propublica.org/covid-evictions/

  • ProPublica also found out that some landlords were violating the federal ban by still evicting people:

"Landlords in at least four states have violated the eviction ban passed by Congress last month, a review of records shows, moving to throw more than a hundred people out of their homes."
