Renters must submit document to landlord to avoid eviction despite CDC moratorium

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Renters must submit a key document to their landlord if they wish to be covered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Covid-19 moratorium on evictions.

According to Alderman Khalif J. Rainey, renters can go here and complete the form, which must then be presented to the landlord. Evictions for failure to pay rent are legal if the tenants do not sign a declaration, despite the CDC moratorium.

"Please remember that there are activities and violations that will not protect renters from being evicted, such as things that threaten the health and safety of neighbors and the community, including nuisance and criminal activities," Rainey said in a news release "I strongly urge renters to take action to protect themselves from eviction as soon as possible."
