The National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM) Takes Legal Action to Oppose CDC Eviction Order
The National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM) has taken legal action in 2 cases in response to the CDC eviction moratorium that was imposed earlier this year.
First, NARPM, along with the New Civil Liberties Alliance, and others, has asked to intervene in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri in the case of KC Tenants v. David M. Byrn. In this case, KC Tenants, a nonprofit supporting Kansas City area tenants, is challenging a Jackson County, MO judicial administrative order, arguing that it violates the CDC’s eviction moratorium for Kansas City to continue operating its landlord-tenant courts.
In their Motion to Intervene and a response in opposition to the plaintiff’s motion for preliminary injunction, NCLA, on behalf of NARPM and others, argues that KC Tenants has improperly asked the Court to enter an injunction that would permit enforcement of CDC’s unlawful order, thus violating NCLA clients’ constitutional rights and denied the ability to invoke processes laid down by Missouri law for retaking possession of their homes. NCLA’s representation gives a voice to Missouri housing providers who are sidelined and suffering significant harm due to unpaid rent and monthly maintenance costs.
Second, in a joint amicus brief filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee, the New Civil Liberties Alliance, a nonpartisan, nonprofit civil rights group, the Beacon Center of Tennessee, the National Apartment Association, and the National Association of Residential Property Managers condemned an eviction moratorium order imposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last month to purportedly prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The amici curiae (NCLA, the Beacon Center of Tennessee, NAA, and NARPM) emphasize two critical points in the case of Tiger Lily, LLC, et al. v. United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, et al. First, CDC’s Order is a breathtaking arrogation of power by an administrative agency under a flimsy pretense of protecting public health. CDC has cited no evidence that any infection has arisen because of an eviction proceeding. Second, the irreparable harm suffered by the plaintiffs will devastate the nationwide rental market. These serious, irreparable consequences must be mitigated by a preliminary injunction against the CDC Order in this case.
NARPM will continue to look for legislative and legal opportunities to challenge the CDC order as well as other rules that unfairly take away the right of property owners and managers.

Why Does NARPM Membership Matter?
Hiring a property manager requires trust. You’re handing over the keys of property worth thousands of dollars, and you’re trusting that someone will manage the property as well as or better than you would.
The NARPM meaning is clear. When a property manager belongs to NARPM, they have a stamp of approval that you can trust them with your property.
Denver has many property managers, but few of them belong to NARPM.
