Pennsylvania lenders will be on alert as the state's pause on evictions and foreclosures is set to run out on Friday, May 1. Naturally, the Pittsburgh United advocacy group is calling for state and local officials to extend the deadline, given the current circumstances.
 
“If there is mass displacement, mass eviction, that is a public health crisis,” said Celeste Scott, Pittsburgh United’s housing justice organizer, according to WESA, a Pittsburgh NPR news station.
 
While the Allegheny County Council passed a motion in support of extending the moratoria on evictions and foreclosures, it is not binding.
 
"The statewide moratorium runs through April 30, but the order from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court gives individual counties the power to extend the prohibition on court action through the end of May. In Allegheny County, President Judge Kim Clark pushed the deadline to May 8," according to the report.
 
Kevin Quisenberry, an attorney with the nonprofit Community Justice Project, believes that not extending these measures is lose-lose situation for tenants and landlords or homeowners and lenders. The report also reminds folks that the CARES Act suspends foreclosures through May 18 for mortgages backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
