#1 Now the rest of the landlords should do the same!

200 is nothing in a city of 8.6 million people.

#2 Most landlords have mortgages to pay, Seeking Cure, and cannot afford to go without the rent monies they pass through to pay them.

#3 Is the State/County going to suspend property taxes as well? They're the ultimate landlord. Don't think so, skip your taxes and see who owns the paper to the property.

#4 Most landlords have mortgages to pay, Seeking Cure

And I'm one of them. Do you know what it's like to have a 'professional tenant' (i.e., someone who knows they can legally live somewhere and not pay rent for six+ months before I can evict her by the book)? Between that, legal & constable fees and the additional $2K plus I had to spend because they trashed the place on the way out, not to mention all the time I spent repairing the place with a leg I could barely stand on, it caused so much stress it was a primary factor in my heart attack last August.

In the end, I'm out about $17K and almost died from it. That's why not every landlord can or will do that.

#6 Surprised you only had $2K in damages, Raj.

Some take the appliances and bathroom/kitchen plumbing fixtures, plus rip wiring and copper pipes out of the walls.

Plus, for some reason, they take the doors off the closets and lose them.

#9 In practice, people who manage land well should be paid by the gummint, not the other way around. But people who don't have any hate that idea.

#15 What M.Murcek said.
"See, the rent is too damn high!"

Professional renters. They could be as smart as cardboard in the rain, but by goodness during a sobriety test they could recite renters' rights backwards.

I have one for you, not even the most damages but: working professional, had work lined up in construction. Worked for a few weeks then quit showing up. Then people quit seeing him about anywhere. No car, so no indication on movement from that. One day we were like, hey what's the story? Went in, an he was gone, skipped out. Place was trashed, soda bottles and wrappers everywhere. With a score worthy of John Williams fading in, we realized that all those soda bottles, well, not full of Mountain Dew.
