The Governor has announced that the eviction moratorium will be extended through March 31, 2021.
“COVID-19 has had a significant financial impact on Washingtonians over the last nine months,” Inslee said. “I know this moratorium has been critical for many families and individuals as they cope with the impacts of this virus. People need certainty about whether the moratorium will be extended, and it is important that I provide that certainty today while we work out the final details of the moratorium.”
It is important to note, that tenant must continue to pay rent if they are able to do so, and that past due balance will be owed by the tenants in the future. There has been no ‘rent forgiveness’.
