Governor Walz has issued an Executive Order prohibiting Minnesota landlords from evicting tenants from their homes or terminating residential leases until the “peacetime emergency” ends unless there is a personal or public health or safety reason for doing so.

However, tenants must still pay rent and follow the rules of their lease.

Landlords who are not following these rules should be reported to the Attorney General’s office, which you can do by clicking here.
