KTS-Covid-Ad---SCRHACOMMUNICATING WITH RESIDENTS REGARDING RENT PAYMENT SITUATION

Because of the differences in the Moratorium Regulations linked to this page, the SCRHA has not been able to create a sample letter for you to use when communicating to residents about rent payments. Instead, we encourage you to reach out to residents proactively and assess their situation. Here is some sample language that might help, particularly in conjunction with Form 298 mentioned on this page too:

Sample Language:  If you have experienced a job layoff or business slowdown that has impacted your family’s income due to COVID-19 pandemic and cannot pay your rent in accordance with the terms of your Rental Agreement, please notify the rental office of your circumstances prior to your due date, but no later the seven days after it. We cannot forgive any rent due, but we will work in good faith with you. We encourage you to pay what you are able and we will ask you to sign a Payment Agreement outlining how you will pay the balance of the rent. You will need to provide proof that your circumstance relates to the COVID-19 pandemic to the rental office at some point, so we suggest that you gather that information as well (pay stubs, bank statements, notices of layoff or furlough, etc.).
