Tennessee among states where renters are at highest risk of eviction

In the wake of the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic, many households are struggling to make their rent payments. The economic impact has been unevenly distributed across the country, based upon varying levels of infection and differing regulations on local businesses and economic activity.

Additionally, states vary in terms of their housing and rental stock and the amount of economic stress on their residents. While the CDC has issued a nationwide moratorium on evictions, the application of this moratorium has been uneven, with some state courts ignoring the order, and many landlords and tenants unaware of the existence of the moratorium. There are also additional steps tenants must take to qualify for the moratorium, which include restrictions on income and a requirement to seek government assistance. The moratorium also expires at the end of January 2021.




Many Americans are having trouble keeping up with rent payments because of the economic stress from the pandemic. Despite an extended nationwide ban for evictions, many renters continue to face the threat of eviction.

AdvisorSmith analyzed all 50 states and D.C using data from the U.S. Census Bureau's Household Pulse Survey to see which states had the highest percentage of renters at risk for eviction. From our research, we found that Tennessee had the #20 highest risk for eviction of renters.

• Among rental households in Tennessee, 9.3% were at risk of eviction in the next two months. The figure nationwide was 8.4% of rental households.

• Of all rental households in Tennessee, 20% were behind on their rent payments. Nationwide, 17.1% of households were behind on rent payments.

• Of the Tennessee rental households behind on their rent payments, 46.3% were at risk of eviction within the next two months. Nationally, 49.1% of households late on their rent payments are expected to be evicted in the following two months.
