The Long Term Impact of Eviction

Posted by Sami Thalji | Aug 10, 2021

Great piece in the New York Times about evictions and the long term effect it will likely have on millions of renters that have had eviction actions brought against them during the COVID-19 pandemic. The punitive nature of maintaining old records, and backgrounds checks not being update to show how eviction cases were disposed will make it very difficult for countless people to get housing, even when they can afford it. This may also set up a string of FCRA litigation down the road, which we will handle. The system is in need of a new approach as to how we deal with past records to influence future decisions. The current system is archaic and designed to bury people that have had just a little bad luck.
