On March 24th, Governor Kelly issued Executive Order 20-10, temporarily prohibiting certain foreclosures and evictions in Kansas as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kansas Appleseed a statewide 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy organization dedicated to the belief that Kansans, working together, can build a state full of thriving, inclusive, and just communities has provided guidance on Executive Order NO. 20-10
Summary of their Guidance
In short, the key word for renters and mortgagers is 'certain':
- Tenants or homeowners cannot be evicted or foreclosed on if the reason for their financial hardship is caused by COVID-19.
- Evictions and foreclosures not related to financial hardships resulting from the pandemic can still happen.
- Tenants and homeowners are still responsible for rent and mortgage payments.
- After the order expires, renters can still be evicted and homeowners foreclosed on.
Read the full Executive Order NO. 20-10.
