FRAMINGHAM – The City of Framingham issued a press release this afternoon, June 28, stating it would adhere to the order signed by Gov. Charlie Baker on June 16, that will extend a moratorium on evictions after the federal evictions moratorium expires on July 31.

In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, there will be an eviction moratorium through April 1, 2022, for individuals unable to pay rent due to COVID-19-related financial hardship.

The June 16 , 2021, law requires landlords to provide a form to tenants they wish to evict for non-payment of rent explaining the notice is not the same as an eviction and that tenants don’t immediately have to leave the unit.

The law also requires that the form landlords must give to tenants when they notify them to leave because of nonpayment of rent must also include information on rental assistance programs, trial court rules and relevant federal or state legal restrictions on residential evictions.
