Court Eviction Status
Governor announces that the State of Emergency will end June 15, 2021, at midnight.
The Legislature passed
, which created a temporary stay on all eviction actions in the State of Vermont. The end of the stay tracks the State of Emergency and will end 30 days after the end of the State of Emergency.
Currently (as of 5/17/2021) the State of Emergency is through June 15, 2021, which means that the eviction stay will end on July 15, 2021. If the State of Emergency is extended, the stay will also be extended.
The stay does not prevent you from sending termination notices to your tenants or from filing with the court. Once a case is filed with the court, it automatically stays until the date described above. NOTE: There are still federal requirements for nonpayment of rent notices, including making the termination notice at least 30 days and including the Debt Collection language if you are a property manager or sending a notice for someone other than yourself.
If you have questions on sending a termination notice or regarding the eviction status, please call us at 802-985-2764.
