As discussed in our December 29 blog post, Congress recently extended the September 4 CDC Order, which temporarily halts certain residential nonpayment evictions, through January 31, 2021.
As anticipated, this afternoon, the Iowa Supreme Court issued a Supervisory Order regarding implementation of the extended CDC Order by Iowa courts. The new Supervisory Order makes no changes to the Court’s prior October 2 order regarding the CDC Order other than extending the effective date through January 31, 2021.
The Iowa Supreme Court’s supervisory orders generally prevail over the CDC’s non-binding guidance in the state of Iowa. More details are in our October 5 blog post.
Landlords with questions about nonpaying renters or how to proceed in the midst of numerous federal and state programs and guidelines should contact an experienced landlord/tenant attorney to discuss their specific situation.
