Ivey to end eviction protections for Alabamians

Local News

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WDHN) — Gov. Kay Ivey will soon end her protections for Alabamians against evictions and foreclosures, according to a new proclamation.

Ivey originally issued the protections in a supplemental emergency on April 3 in order to keep people inside during her stay at home order. Essentially, this kept state and local law enforcement from enforcing orders that “would result in the displacement of a person from his or her place of residence.”

On May 8, the proclamation was changed to allow foreclosures and evictions if the residents in question were breaking the law.

However, with Alabamians now being able to return to work, the protections will now expire midnight on June 1, 2020.
