The department of social service has been paying $253 a month part of the rent for my tenant. However, they discontinued her program because she is receiving unemployment now. I informed her which she said ok and ask the DSS number.
They have been good tenants and payment every month. I haven't received the $253 for March and they didn't say anything. How do I go about collecting the money and telling them moving forward they have to pay the full rent?
Thank you always for your feedback.
Talk to them and ask if they submitted their paperwork for you to get the rent. Some times things take a while for paperwork to go through, but I'm also guessing if they are unemployed, they are getting other money.
Did they pay you the rest of the rent?
@Jay Bob Is she claiming hardship for a COVID eviction moratorium? If so, she needs to notify you and you provide the proper resources to document that qualification (it's not automatic nor a free pass in most jurisdictions).
Otherwise, you would just proceed along with the process as documented in the lease... serving a pay or quit, etc. You can do this, and continue to keep the lines of communication open to work with her. Communication is key.
Thank you. Yes, they paid. Just the $253 the government discontinued they haven't pay.
I appreciate your time. No, she is not claiming hardship. I believe she is making more money by claiming unemployment that is why DSS disqualified her for extra cash.
