Governor Ducey Extends COVID-19 Eviction Protections; Expands Rental Assistance Access And Provides Homeowners Foreclosure Relief

Executive Order 2020-14 regarding postponement of eviction action has been extended until October 31st, 2020. This is in direct response to the significant delays tenants are having in getting their Save Our Home AZ Funds applications reviewed and processed through the Community Action Agencies that are managing those funds.

In addition to extending the moratorium on Eviction Lockouts, the State is putting $650,000 towards hiring more staff to help with the application reviews and $5million towards foreclosure prevention for owners unable to pay their mortgage due to tenants not paying rent.

It is important to note that Evictions can still be filed in court, this moratorium ONLY affects the lockout portion of the eviction process. As always 4:10 wants to avoid filing evictions and needs tenant cooperation by following the steps outlined here to avoid that.

Also note, that per this new order- After August 21, renters will need to provide their landlord or property owner a copy of their completed pending application for rental assistance through a state, city, county or nonprofit program. In order for the Moratorium On Eviction Lockout to apply to their situation.
