When the pandemic struck, thousands of citizens were put out of work. Meaning that they had no way of affording rent or bills. This is when the Federal Eviction moratorium was put into place. This moratorium provided much-needed relief for renters struggling to make due on their rent. However, the rent would need to be paid back eventually.
Not only were residents affected by this, but so were landlords who were forced to abide by these regulations. Thousands of landlords like yourself may be wondering: how am I going to get my money back? Well, lucky for you, as of June 30th, 2021 the Housing Moratorium will be ending. This means that you can again reserve the right to evict or sue your residents for any money owed to you.
As a landlord, making sure that residents are paying their rent on time is critical to ensuring that your property can stay open long-term. Therefore, if you need a reliable lawyer to help assist you through this process, Okonji law firm can help you do just that!
