Goldman: 750K households face eviction this year if rent relief isn’t sped up

Banking giant estimates that 2.5M to 3.5M U.S. households owe landlords a combined $12B to $17B

With the federal ban on evictions nullified, economists are painting a grim picture for millions of Americans behind on rent.

Analysts at the banking giant estimate that 2.5 to 3.5 million American households are behind on their rent, Politico reported, owing landlords a combined $12 billion to $17 billion across the country.

Last week, the Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration’s latest federal eviction moratorium, clearing the way for eviction proceedings to start across the country.
