With the evictions moratorium ending at midnight on September 29, if you are still in dispute about a rent reduction due to COVID excessive hardship or are yet to request one, make sure you have notified your lessor, agent or provider, in writing, about your circumstances before the moratorium ends!!
During the moratorium lessors, agents or providers cannot evict a tenant or resident for failure to pay rent if the failure related to the tenant suffering excessive hardship because of the COVID-19 emergency. Affected renters could also request a rent reduction (or deferral). These rent disputes will continue be resolved under the ‘COVID regulations’ even after the moratorium ends if the matter was raised beforehand. That’s why it’s important to make sure you have evidence of informing your lessor or agent.
