CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR RENT?

(CATHY CHATS) The Federal moratorium provides that a lessor may not evict a tenant after the moratorium expires except on 30 days’ notice-which may not be given until after the moratorium period. See Sec. 4024(c).
*What This Means – Call your landlord! Even though a landlord may not legally kick you out, let them know if you are no longer working at this time.  Work through your options and know what impact the delay in rent may have on your future at the property. Cathyrodgers912@Gmail.com
