A North Carolina landlord says he is out $24,000 in unpaid rent from tenants, while one renter bought three boats over the course of the eviction moratorium just as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced a new ban that will last until Oct. 3.

Buddy Shoup, who owns 35 properties across the state, said that he has been forced to maintain the properties and hemorrhage costs while the federal government slowly dribbles out rental assistance, of which only 7% has been doled out to renters in need.

“[The money] was used, they went and bought brand new boats, but I mean, you know in a time of crisis like what we’ve been through, you’re evidently getting money from somewhere, but it’s not getting to me,” said Shoup.

Landlords fight back against Biden’s new eviction moratorium

Landlords and real estate companies are taking the Biden administration to court in a bid to stop a new eviction moratorium, which was extended via the CDC after the Supreme Court ruled the move to be up to Congress.

The Alabama and Georgia Association of Realtors filed a federal lawsuit in Washington DC late Wednesday pushing for evictions to resume after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed the temporary ban had been reinstated.

CDC’s Eviction Moratorium Was Illegal, Tyrannical, and Un-American from Day One
