Pennsylvania ban on evictions and foreclosures during pandemic extended through August

With record numbers of Pennsylvanians out of work because of the coronavirus pandemic shutdown, Gov. Tom Wolf on Thursday signed an executive order barring home foreclosures and evictions through Aug. 31.

This new order extends a previous order the governor had issued that would have expired Friday forbidding renters and homeowner to be removed from their homes. That action followed a Pennsylvania Supreme Court order that closed court eviction proceedings until May.

"I am taking this action to help families know they will have a roof over their heads and a place to live while all of us fight the COVID-19 pandemic,” the governor said. “It takes one more burden off of people who are struggling and ensures that families can remain in their homes so they can protect their health and well-being.”

In almost all circumstances, Wolf said renters and homeowners are required to continue making monthly payments if they can. It also states that the order only applies to those who have not received assistance through one of several state and federal programs.

1. Awesome news!

Too many hard working Americans lost their homes in the 2008 recession, while nothing was done by the government to help them. This bill will at least help us Pennsylvanians get back on our feet, the other states need to do the same for their citizens.
