Over One Million Angelenos Face Eviction as Moratorium Expires
As the state-wide eviction moratorium is set to expire on Sept. 30, approximately 1.4 million Los Angeles residents are at risk of eviction or foreclosure, according to an analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data by Shaler Economic Enterprises.
Shaler Economic Enterprises reported that there are just under 360,000 renters and mortgage borrowers living in Los Angeles County who are not at all confident that they can make their next rent or mortgage payment.
At 2.95 persons per household, that would be about 1.4 million people living in Los Angeles County who are at risk of being evicted from their homes in the next few months.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Richard Lutz told The Epoch Times that the department expects to see a “slow and steady increase of eviction cases following the moratorium.”
