Public Hearing: Eviction Pre-Filing Requirement

The eviction moratorium has been protecting many renters and homeowners in Powderhorn from losing their homes during the pandemic, but we know the government will end the moratorium at some point. Even before the pandemic, many organizations and activists were advocating to strengthen eviction protections in Minneapolis and the state.

The City of Minneapolis has announced its intent to pursue an eviction protections policy that would do a couple of things:

  • Requires rental property owners to give tenants a written reason that they are being evicted or not having their lease renewed

  • Limits the reasons for which a tenant can be evicted

  • Requires rental property owners to give tenants at least a certain amount of notice in writing before filing formal eviction paperwork
