Settlement Program Offers Alternative to Eviction 

Article by the Indiana Lawyer. 

Elizabeth Sickles, President of INstateREIA, talks about how most landlords and housing providers WANT to work with their renters, and ARE working with the renters who are willing to work with them.

“Landlords want to do everything they can to keep good tenants in their properties,” Maora Sickels said. “If the tenants are even halfway willing to try to work something out, the landlords definitely want to help them.”

Update 10/6/2020

Eviction Data the Media is Spouting has Little to No Validity

Article by Slate

Most of the numbers that the media is sensationalizing are out of date and/or incomplete. Some data points are based on evictions filed, not evictions finished.  They also do not show which evictions are for lack of payment vs. destruction of property such as running a meth lab in the property.  

"The media uproar over eviction tsunamis hides an increasingly embarrassing fact: We don’t even know how many Americans were evicted in 2019. How, then, are we supposed to help the estimated 30 to 40 million renters who are at risk of being evicted in 2021, when the moratorium lifts?

In short, local policies, differences in institutional capacity, and a lack of standardization across jurisdictions countrywide lead to a frustrating inability to pull together housing loss data in any meaningful way."

UPDATE 9/2/2020 

Effective September 4th, the CDC has issued a 37 page nationwide eviction moratorium through 12/31/2020.  For the full CDC ruling click here: Rules of Federal Moratorium.pdf

Attorneys resoundingly agree that this is 100% unconstitutional and a gross over reach by the Federal government on state level issues. 

Here's what you need to know:

  • The plan allows tenants to stop eviction proceedings by providing to the landlord, a "Declaration" (CDC_moratorium_affidavit.docx) which essentially state they earn under $99,000/year (or twice that for jointly filed returns) and that if evicted, their only option is homelessness or living in "closer quarters."
  • This "Declaration" is signed under the penalty of perjury, however, there is no further requirement for proof. Nor is there ability to rebut these declarations as a landlord.
  • The penalties for noncompliance with this order include up to $250,000 fine and one year in jail.
  • Full payment, including fees, penalties, or interest are still fully collectible once this moratorium is lifted.
  • This order does NOT prevent emergency evictions or evictions for lease violations, criminal activity, etc. It only prevents eviction for non-payment of rent.

Be A Part of the "I Love My Landlord" Campaign

INstateREIA is launching a "I Love My Landlord" campaign to combat the perception that "landlords are the bad guys" that the media has been touting over the past few months.

Far from being the bad guys, landlords are just business owners trying to make a living for themselves. They provide society with a vital service - safe, clean and habitable shelter at a fair price.

Click the video below to learn about how you can be a part of INstateREIA's new PR campaign to celebrate how housing providers contribute to society.


To purchase your "I Love My Landlord" yard sign and do your part to help improve public perception of housing providers, please visit our store.



91% of rental income collected goes towards the costs of maintaining the property (mortgages, taxes, insurance, upkeep) and ensuring that safe and quality housing is available to tenants at a fair market value. 

If housing providers cannot collect rent, how can we expect them to continue to provide safe and quality housing to the 73% of renters that live in the state of Indiana?
