A group of landlords and real estate companies believe that the newest eviction moratorium spells trouble for “mom-and-pop” housing providers, which make up about half of the industry’s operators.
So the Alabama and Georgia Association of Realtors is taking the Biden administration to court in an effort to curb the eviction pause, which now lasts through October 3.
The group filed their lawsuit late yesterday, claiming that the CDC has overstepped their power once again.
If the housing professionals are successful, about 3.6 million Americans could be kicked out of their homes. If they aren’t, those small operators face their own bevy of financial hardships.
“Without rental income, they cannot pay their own bills or maintain their properties,” officials said.
