You have probably heard about the national Eviction Moratorium. The Moratorium is like a ban, which temporarily stops evictions. The Eviction Moratorium was issued in September 2020 by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and will be in effect through June 30, 2021. However, the ban does not protect all renters and it is not automatic.
Relocating into a new rental unit is normally a difficult process, but the COVID-19 pandemic made it even more challenging. In the State of Wisconsin, Commercial Real Estate is an essential business and many rental companies offer apartment tours at this time. When you leave your home to tour a rental unit, please follow these safety recommendations from Milwaukee County: stay 6 feet away from other people, wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds as often as possible, sneeze into your elbow, refrain from shaking hands, and wear a face mask.
