For renters who have lost their source of income due to COVID-19, these are difficult times — especially during a shelter-at-home order, when staying home is a critical public health mandate. How do you stay at home if you don’t have one?
Many local, state, and federal protections have been put in place for renters and homeowners, as well as landlords, to help avoid eviction and foreclosure at least through the summer. We’ve covered those protections in more detail online.
But many of these new laws require taking clear steps to protect your right to stay in your home if you don’t pay all or some of your rent — for now.
The Fresnoland Lab is hosting a Facebook Live session with attorneys Patience Milrod and Nikki Love of Central California Legal Services and professors Amber Crowell and Janine Nkosi, both of the Fresno State Department of Sociology (both work as regional advisors to Faith in the Valley, a nonprofit organization supporting tenants and affordable housing issues).
The session will focus on answering questions from renters regarding what they need to know if they aren’t able to pay all or some of their rent.
The session will be on Tuesday, April 14th from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Facebook Live. Pose questions to the panelists live as the event unfolds.
