When the Baker-Polito Moratorium on Evictions & Foreclosures expires on October 17, 2020 the Federal moratorium established by the Center for Desease Control and Prevention (CDC) will become effective in Massachusetts:
Through DECEMBER 31, 2020 the CDC moratorium will prevent evictions for non-payment for qualified tenants who submit a WRITTEN DECLARATION to their Landlord. Print and fill out this form.https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/declaration-form.pdf
The Courts will accept filings and process cases, and may enter judgements, but will NOT issue an order of execution (the court order that allows a landlord to evict a tenant) until AFTER the expiration of the CDC order on DECEMBER 31, 2020. This protection is limited to households who meet certain income and vulnerability criteria.
