COVID-19 Update: Executive Order Extending Eviction and Foreclosure Protections

access_time Posted on: July 10th, 2020

Yesterday, Governor Wolf signed a new executive order extending eviction and foreclosure protections for homeowners and renters through August 31, 2020. The executive order must be read carefully because it does not provide protection in all cases. The Governor’s executive order precludes the initiation of new mortgage foreclosure action – however, it does not protect homes which had already been scheduled for sheriff sale or if the lender has already commenced the mortgage foreclosure process. Evictions are suspended for non-payment of rent or for “holding over” after the term of the lease has expired – but evictions for violations of other… read more »

access_time Posted on: April 2nd, 2020

COVID-19 Update: The CARES Act and Bankruptcy Last month, March of 2020, The CARES Act was passed in light of the impacts of COVID-19. Specifically, there were changes affecting  Bankruptcies – both current and prospective cases. The CARES Act (the “Act”) excludes Coronavirus related payments from the definition of disposable income and the Bankruptcy Estate, i.e. the government stimulus check. Receiving the stimulus check within 6-months of filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy will therefore not disqualify a Debtor from filing a Bankruptcy under Chapter 7. While the Act does not explicitly state this applies to Chapter 13, most Trustees, even… read more »
