Statement on Eviction Moratorium Extension
On Monday evening Governor DeSantis extended the moratorium on evictions and foreclosures until July 1, 2020. The Apartment Association of Greater Orlando (AAGO) respects and understands the Governor’s decision.
Without a doubt, the pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented hardship for apartment residents. AAGO members responded swiftly, as the crisis was unfolding, in meaningful ways to provide flexibility and payment options for renters who lost employment or income as a result of the pandemic. The apartment industry went to great lengths to provide a path forward and peace of mind for apartment residents.
AAGO, and our partners at the Florida Apartment Association and National Apartment Association, would remind elected leaders that moratoriums provide short term security, but fall short of ameliorating the issue. Rent relief and expanded mortgage forbearance programs are critically needed to provide stability for renters and housing providers alike.
