To all of our valued clients:
Please carefully review the important information included!!
Effective May 3, 2021 landlords will be required to comply with the new regulation issued by the Consumer Financial Protections Bureau (CFPB) for debt collectors, this would include not only landlords but also the attorneys for landlords.
Under this new regulation you are now required to notify all debtors of the protection that may be available to them under the CDC Order before filing an eviction action for non-payment of rent.
We have sent a copy of a standard Three Day Notice with the required CDC language. If you prefer, you may add the language to the notice to you currently use as follows:
“Because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for temporary protection from eviction under Federal law. Learn the steps you should take now: visit www.cfpb.gov/eviction or call a housing counselor at 800-569-4287.”
As always, if you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact us.
