Prohibition of evictions – Safety net or illegal seizure of property?
The moratorium on intermittent deportations across America is back. The federal Centers for Disease Control manages the new order. The intermittent support of President Joe Biden is back. Before the declaration, the president said that the government did not have the power to do so. Now the president supports the ban.
The situation surrounding rental housing, expected tenant payments, property rights and the validity of rental contracts, has all the makings of a monumental economic crash facing the country.
Many homeowners complain that the government is interfering with their rights to manage their property and that the moratorium on evictions is simply illegal.
In Calhoun County, the chairman of the local county commissioners council, Steve Frisbee, is among the owners saying everything is a big mess. President Frisbee publishes on his Facebook page that he was lucky to have tenants who have paid their due. But he knows many homeowners who face financial ruin.
Quoting Frisbee, “Unless there is an unchallenged law or executive order supporting this, I don’t know how a court could apply this based on a CDC statement. He is a perfect example of the federal bureaucrats who run the swamp. “
Earlier this year, media reports focused on helping the COVID-19 stimulus that was supposed to go to Michigan homeowners and tenants. But hundreds of millions of requested payments have not been processed.
There is a new court challenge to the CDC’s eviction moratorium, which has received little media attention. It is based primarily on the “takes” clause of the US Constitution. It demands that the government provide fair compensation for the property it has taken from American citizens. The National Apartment Association plaintiffs are seeking $ 26 billion in damages.
There is no doubt that further legal challenges regarding the government’s intrusion into rental property will be filed in the coming days.
