My state has halted evictions, but my tenants have already stopped paying rent. What are the next steps?

April 1, 2020

Try to avoid any evictions due to non-payment of rent right now. Your first steps should be to ask for mortgage forbearance, use any money you have saved, and apply for an SBA small business loan created especially for businesses affected by COVID-19.

If you’ve exhausted your options, speak to a lawyer who specializes in landlord-tenant law. You can find one through your state’s apartment association or housing department.
