Inslee extends eviction moratorium

OLYMPIA – Gov. Jay Inslee this afternoon extended his coronavirus-related eviction moratorium through Oct. 31.

Calling the moratorium a “bridge,” Inslee said his action will allow municipalities to put in place financial assistance programs for those who haven’t paid their rent or mortgages during the 18 months of his orders related to the virus that originated in Wuhan, China.

Money is available, he said, adding: “We think this extension provides ample times for these funds to get out to citizens.”

In early August, the governor said he was ending the moratorium, but then authorized loopholes that still prevented landlords and mortgage holders from starting eviction proceedings through the end of September.
