CDC moratorium set to expire, wave of evictions expected
Several people may be facing evictions in the new year if a temporary halt on COVID-19 related evictions is lifted.
Dan Wichmer, the executive director of legal services of Southern Missouri, said a wave of evictions could happen if the CDC moratorium on evictions set to expire on Dec. 31, 2020.
“People are going to have to understand both sides, both landlords and tenants,” said Wichmer.
Wichmer says COVID-19 is putting both tenants and landlords in a sticky situation. Tenants can’t make rent and landlords can’t keep up their business if they aren’t making money.
