NAA Shares CDC Guidance to Order

News ,

The NAA has shared guidance issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC) regarding the temporary halt on evictions. The CDC again affirms the Association's original interpretation of the order, most specifically:

1.  A landlord is not precluded from filing an eviction based on non-payment, or a court hearing a summary ejectment matter and awarding judgment, but a writ cannot be issued putting the resident out;

2.  A landlord can challenge a CDC declaration in court if they believe it is inaccurate.

Last week AANC sent communication to NC Supreme Court Chief Justice ( Cheri Beasley) requesting guidance to the Courts in light of the CDC's legal brief that was filed Oct. 2nd addressing the intent of the order in Brown v. Azar. This week AANC will share the latest guidance from the CDC with the Chief Justice, Office of the Courts, and the North Carolina School of Government seeking instruction to the Courts in accordance with the CDC's guidance.
