If you are wondering how a federal government health agency has the authority to order the extension of a moratorium on home-renter evictions you are not alone. The Centers For Disease Control decreed yesterday that renters who haven’t kept current on their rental bills in counties where significant transmission of the Coronavirus is occurring can’t be evicted at least until October 3rd. The C D C which was created as a health prevention and information agency has sided with the Biden administration who’s officials have admitted they were trying to figure out how to reinstate a moratorium that had expired this past weekend. In making the announcement the C D C said the move was necessary to keep people in their homes and curb the spread of the virus. Critics question whether the agency has the legal authority to issue such a mandate. Court challenges are sure to come from land lords who’ve been dealing with an eviction moratorium that had been in effect from the start of the pandemic until last Saturday, but at the speed our federal court system moves, the issue won’t likely be resolved for weeks. That’s the way I see it.
