We are writing to urge the CFPB to amend the Interim Final Rule on Debt Collection Practices in Connection With the Global COVID-19 Pandemic (“IFR”) to clarify that it applies to the current eviction moratorium. The IFR requires increased information for tenants about COVID-related protection from eviction, and clarifies that consumers have federal remedies against debt collectors involved in the eviction that fail to provide or misrepresent that information.
