We understand that during these uncertain times it is important to stay informed, but with so much information that changes daily it is difficult to sort through everything. Therefore, our staff has been working diligently to stay on top of all the useful and relevant resources for our members to access through one page on the SAR website. You can find the links to this information on our ‘Plan of Action’ page, such as current updates from CEO Dave Tanner and the Executive Committee. This page also includes every jurisdiction that has passed an eviction moratorium in our area of representation. Even though there is a statewide eviction moratorium order, it is important to note that some of the local ordinances will still apply in certain circumstances. Please keep this in mind if you or a client owns rental property. Remember to continue to check our website for updated information as we continue to include new information as it is received.
