State and federal eviction protections have ended. The federal (Centers for Disease Control or CDC) eviction moratorium is no longer available to tenants as protection against eviction. The United States Supreme Court has said the CDC did not have the authority to issue a nationwide eviction moratorium (pause to evictions). Do not fill out a CDC Declaration.
State eviction protections are no longer active.
The Washington State eviction moratorium ended on June 30, 2021. After this the governor issued a temporary law or proclamation called the “bridge.”
This “bridge” proclamation provided some statewide eviction protections. But these protections have ended as of October 31, 2021.
If you owe back rent, your landlord must still offer you a reasonable repayment plan. And they must offer you the opportunity for mediation through an Eviction Resolution Pilot Program (ERPP). If you are facing eviction, call 1-855-657-8387 or Apply Online.
To learn more about repayment plans, see sample plans, and find out if there are extra local protections where you live, see Coronavirus (COVID-19): Can my landlord evict me now?
No late fees allowed until January 1, 2022.
Landlords are not allowed to charge late fees to tenants owe rent anytime from March 1, 2020 to December 31, 2021.
