Governor Kelly Issued a Halt to Legal Eviction and Mortgage Foreclosure
Governor Kelly held a news conference Monday, August 17, and announced a new moratorium on legal evictions and mortgage foreclosure. The temporary stop starts right away.
Mortgage eviction or foreclosure should be caused by substantial financial difficulties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic (job loss, reduction in working hours, etc).
The Governor's Executive Order does not void any eviction or foreclosure already filed. The ban is in place until September 15, 2020.
The Governor further reported that some kind of assistance package for the owners is underway. However, the details have yet to be resolved.
The official proclamation is attached.
