A new state law includes a policy guiding property owners and renters in an orderly transition from the eviction moratorium, now that the State peacetime emergency preventing property owners from evicting residents for not paying rent has ended.
The policy requires a property owner or manager who intends on filing an eviction for non-payment of rent to provide a written notice to their renter, along with information about rental assistance, 15 days before filing an eviction proceeding with the courts between now and Oct. 12.
This law also prohibits a property owner or manager from evicting a renter if the renter has a pending application for COVID-19 emergency rental assistance at the state or local level until June 1, 2022. The renter must be able to prove that they’ve applied for rental assistance. Renters may apply for COVID-19 emergency rental assistance at renthelpmn.org.
I have questions about my specific housing situation and how it relates to the end of the eviction moratorium. Who should I contact?
