TULSA, Okla. — A moratorium that started this month designed to keep thousands of Americans from being homeless is set to expire at the end of the year.
Tulsa Legal Aid Attorney Eric Hallett says the intent was to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It’s not automatic, but a declaration form can stop the eviction process for some. Here’s some things to know:
- Declaration form must be signed under oath
- Give a copy to your landlord and the judge if you have a court date
- Those not meeting the criteria can still be evicted
