The ūüí© show continues.¬†

Let's define "fairness" ... and I'd bet we have two vastly different definitions depending on what side of the landlord-tenant fence one is on.

This unfunded mandate on property owners is of course not fair to them (This is more than "just my opinion").

"Fairness" would be a mandate with compensation.

Not a fan of the rules - I have a high-end rental that my tenant lost his job. Instead of paying ANYTHING, he is not paying a dime. He is getting federal assistance....I am not. I still have to pay the mortgage!

I feel sorry for both but it is unfair for the owner to have to pay for their tenant to live. They may also be out of work.

It is still a give & tug on both sides. In IL, they have stopped evictions until the end of the year. 

There is nothing fair going on at all.

A buyer of mine was in contract with a home that had a tenant who was supposed to move out by a certain date. That didn't happen.  My buyer wouldn't take the home with the tenant and the uncertainties about when he would move out.  So cancelled the contract and we moved on to another home where we closed without problems.  The tenant occupied home? Just shows as "expired" now.

Here in CA it has been extended to commercial real estate also.  It is what it is, and my opinion does not amount to a hill of beans.  I think everyone is doing the best they can.,.

Well capitalized corporate landlords may be able to withstand the interruption in income.

For small investors, the pain of not having income but having a mortgage to pay is substantial. Forbearance for some will help but that will also come at a cost.

Our Team is already working with a landlord who has chosen to sell rather then face the uncertainty of not having income which was an important part of his financial matrix.

An out-of-work renter who suffers eviction because of not being able to pay rent would have very few housing options. Homelessness is already a major problem in our society.

Yet, should those who can pay their rent be excused from paying by government edict?

And by the way, rent is not being forgiven, it is being deferred. Will the renters be able to make up the arrears when the eviction moratoriums have run their course?

Will the owners be able to make up the payments held in forbearance when those payments become due?

There are no simple solutions.

All those owners of rental property are still obligated to pay their mortgage and insurance and most likely property maintenance. They may be sinking into the pit faster than the tenants being protected.
AND they know come JAN 1 those tenants will be unable to make the landlord whole by bring the account up to date. It is highly likely the tenant being fully aware of the inevitable stopped paying the untilities that will fall upon the owner to pay.
Easily one can see the owner getting hit with at least $12,000 in lost revenue ($1,500 mo x 8) and $2,500 in expenses plus eviction costs.

The lessons learned from the 2008 Bank of America caused recession was to the bold go the spoils. Those who pocketed their morgage payment made out like bandits. Pocketing $12,000 in rent money can be a big deal for many renters.
Here is the rub. Those attorney law makers knows these owners will get no sympathy from the general public (democrats) so it is safe, even beneficial to their cause to create these victims. There will be a 30% token offered to make the owners whole again when gov't is in session again and can get it passed in May, to cover the time up to Dec 31.....now here is the attorney created poison pill.....only if the property is still vacant.
Special dispensation will be offered those owners who 'voluntarily' sign up for the apology tour.
Other than that....I have no opinion.

There are many issues here like roots of a plant. 

1. Not all tenants are NOT paying rent

2. If owners are cut-off from income via government the gov is responsible

3. Now is a good time to consider good property management. Why? All my tenants are treated so well they wouldn't even think of not paying

4. Reduce the rents for now. Some rent is better than no rent

5. Legal remedy exists galore. File an action naming everyone and the settlement will come shortly after that. Why? There is no defense to this

6. Consider this a good time to tithe via rent loss if you can. Its not only a write-off but profitable in the spiritual realms

7. The system before it was tweaked worked well-enough. Be patient until we return to it.

8. Mea Culpa from the government, state and city stands....

My opinion of Congress and what may or may not happen there would likely not be viewed as "fair" for multiple reasons.

In MA the governor extended that eviction moratorium to Oct 17, 2020. Who knows what will happen after that. I don't think it's fair to the owner/landlord as many tenants abuse the system and stopped paying their rent BUT the owner still had to pay their mortgage

Florida put out the rules and tenants do need to jump through hoops and prove their inability to pay.

I it not as easy as just deciding not to pay...

There are lawsuits pending that challenge¬†the legality of these government actions as violations of the Constitution.¬† The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution stipulates:¬† ‚Äúnor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.‚ÄĚ

If the government wants to provide housing, they could buy the housing,  they could pay the rent, they could loan money to the renters, or they could provide FEMA emergency housing.

Yes, that kills the owners of the properties. 

I don't think it was a good idea let tenants do not pay the rent. 

A lot of them took advantage of the landlords.

They gave zero thought to anyone who owns a rental, whether it be a condo, 2 family, even a sngle family all the way yp to multi familes. I am hearing from many landlords who cant collect rent, they cant evict, they cant pay their mortgage and call me for help. I have been able to sell a few already to keep them from being foreclosed. I have a feeling this will increase

 I am wondering what are the latest facts, figures, and bar graphs showing the percentage of tenants paying their rent through the first nine months of 2020.  Of course, the next four months will be crucial to how 2020 turns out.
