Eviction and Foreclosure Moratoriums Extended in Pennsylvania
July 9, 2020
Governor Wolf issued an executive order extending the rental eviction and foreclosure moratorium. The moratorium was due to expire July 10, 2020, but has been extended to August 31, 2020.
The Order protects homeowners and renters from eviction or foreclosure until Aug. 31, if they have not received assistance from a new program administered by the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) or are not already receiving relief through one of several federal foreclosure moratorium programs or judicial orders. Lenders and property owners that receive funds through the PHFA program agree not pursue foreclosure or eviction actions as a condition of participation in the program.
