Minnesota issues executive order suspending evictions and writs of recovery, requesting moratorium on foreclosures
On March 23, the Minnesota governor issued an executive order suspending evictions and writs of recovery during the Covid-19 pandemic. The order also requests that financial institutions holding home mortgages implement an immediate moratorium on all pending and future foreclosures and related evictions when the foreclosure or foreclosure-related eviction is caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Financial institutions are also strongly urged not to impose late fees or other penalties for late mortgage payments related to the Covid-19 pandemic. The executive order will remain in effect until the declared emergency is terminated or rescinded.
