LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A national 4-month moratorium on some housing evictions will take effect on Friday.

The latest government order bans evictions by owners of any residential property.


To protect yourself, you'll be required to sign the government's declaration form stating you're unable to make full rent due to a substantial loss of income.

You'll also have to agree to pay the rent you owe at the beginning of the new year.

Princeton University's Eviction Lab calls the moratorium crucial.

The latest census pulse survey shows about a third of renters have little to no confidence they can make their rent.
