If my tenant was not impacted by COVID-19 and is still employed, do they need to pay rent?

April 1, 2020

Currently, yes. While the eviction ban is a blanket ban at a federal level, your tenants who are not affected by COVID-19 should still pay rent as they normally would. However, it’s important to let them know you care and are open to communication if things change in the future. 

If you want to reach out and make sure your tenants know you still expect rent to be paid, you can use this letter template.
