Eviction Prevention

FHFA Eviction Moratorium Property Lookup Tools

Evictions in federally subsidized properties are frozen until Aug. 31. The Federal Housing Finance Administration (FHFA) announced on May 4, 2020, that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have developed online multifamily property lookup tools to help renters find out if they are living in units protected from evictions during the pandemic because the properties have federally-backed loans.
