Gov. Lamont extends moratorium on evictions

(WFSB) – Some decent news for renters this break season.

Gov. Ned Lamont signed an government order Wednesday evening that extends the existing moratorium on residential evictions to February 9, 2021.

beneath the government order, the governor is also banning evictions except the day after New 12 months’s day, January 2.

The executive order also gives the renter(s) the choice to practice a element of their safety deposit against their rent.

however, the security deposit must be more than the month-to-month appoint.

The eviction moratorium has come under scrutiny currently.

a couple of months ago, a bunch of landlords had filed below a lawsuit against the state of Connecticut.
