Renters can receive full budget and credit counseling with a credit review to make any transitions easier, landlord advocate/eviction diversion services, or relocation services if necessary
COVID 19 and your rent. Here are the latest FACTS and what we are telling our rental clients to do.
We continue to tell our clients that if they have been laid off or have reduced hours due to Corona virus, they should CALL their LANDLORD. They should tell their landlord their income situation and let them know the rent will be late. Your landlord CANNOT EVICT YOU.
With the new FEMA Emergency Declaration: New Jersey Covid-19 Pandemic (DR-4488), additional Federal Disaster funds will be made available to the state and this move COULD include funds to help Renters.
We are working with the National Low Income Housing Coalition to advocate for Rent Assistance.
We suspect like most tenants that you are already paying $1,500 per month. Then you get laid off, like scores of other workers right now. OK you’re protected from eviction for the next six months, or as long as this pandemic continues.
But then what? Will you be forced to pay $9,000 in back rent? (For context, 6 in 10 Americans don’t even have $500 in savings.)
Under almost all the proposals being discussed, tenants will still be responsible for all the rent they cannot pay during the crisis—they’ll have massive rent debt. This will ultimately just delay huge numbers of evictions until a few months after the state of emergency is officially declared to be over .
We are advocating for Rental Assistance for all those affected by the COVID 19 Pandemic
