The recent drama of the moratorium being lifted on tenants who did not pay their rent.
Unemployment benefits range from $200 to $900 weekly plus from $300 to $600 enhanced benefits to help pay rent, plus the increase of food stamps to $234 a month plus stimulus checks for low income amounting to thousands of tax dollars yet, rent was not paid. Not even some monies going to lower amount owed.
The feel-good politicians’ orders of no evictions now has come to roost, and the “Oh, woe is me” attitude of tenants who did not manage the monies well, (and) won’t if they get more. The monies should have gone directly to the landlord, the balance back to the taxpayer. Now even the landlords get some help and rightly so, rent will go up but, when landlords get help from taxpayers (directly paid to them) they should not be allowed to ask for more than they did prior to this COVID-19.
