Statewide—Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed a statewide order in March that placed a moratorium on most tenant evictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. In mid-May he extended that moratorium until July 1. But that has not prevented some Indiana landlords from filing eviction lawsuits anyway.
The only exception to this rule is emergency evictions are now permitted if there is a specific immediate and serious injury, damage, or loss to the property. Also, emergency foreclosures are permitted if the property is vacant or if there is a specific immediate and serious injury, damage, or loss to the property.
