There are 3 comments on BU School of Law Joins Fight in Eviction Moratorium Crisis

  1. I’m at the point of homelessness because the landlord does not want to accept the rental assistance I got approved for, and I’ve been living here for 25yrs now with a wife and 4yr old disabled child and he still feels no sympathy, I just started working in July and backed up on child support from my eldest child from a previous relationship and about 10 months of rent which I did get approved for rent assistance, but the landlord is refusing..

  2. At this point whether landlords receive back rent or not tenants have already received free rent in many cases for has long as eighteen months. The eviction moratoriums have disproportionately affected black and brown landlords and decimated if not destroyed their generational wealth.

    Schools are open, businesses are begging for workers, people are out and about, going to gyms, bars, restaurants, vacations and flying on planes. With vaccines and masking to protect people it is time to allow landlords the opportunity to save their businesses. Small landlords especially…who have survived are hanging on by a thread. They have given enough and it is not their job to provide free housing and work for free like they are slaves. Someone out here keeps forgetting that landlords are trying run a business, pay mortgages, taxes, college for their kids or are retirees on limited incomes and you can’t run a business on zero.

    Landlords who don’t want to take rental assistance probably have other reasons why they want that tenant to move on. No landlord wants to lose a good tenant who pays their rent.
