Join NAA Lawsuit for Damages Suffered During CDC Eviction Moratorium

Posted By: Denise Hanzlik Community , Industry ,

WHAT IS THE NAA LAWSUIT ABOUT?

The National Apartment Association wants to make the rental housing industry whole and stop the federal
government from damaging the rental housing industry ever again by ensuring that they pay for their
CDC Eviction Moratorium Order.

There isn’t enough emergency rental assistance funding—an estimated $26.6 billion in rent debt remain
unfunded—and this lawsuit is the most feasible way to collect that money. And importantly, we also have
a favorable Supreme Court that has recently issued a ruling supporting property rights.
Now is the time to take a stand and secure property rights for generations to come.

WHY IS YOUR PARTICIPATION CRITICAL?

The government has greatly damaged the rental housing industry with the CDC Eviction Moratorium
Order and we need to not only recover, but also ensure this cannot ever happen again. A favorable ruling
showing that the CDC’s Eviction Moratorium Order was an illegal taking would require direct compensation
for all similar actions in the future. This would ensure that all levels of government would never again be
able to stop evictions without compensation based on an emergency declaration. Additionally, property
owners must participate in the lawsuit to access any dollars awarded through the lawsuit.

The industry’s future depends on property owners’ participation—even for those that experienced
limited losses.
