Maine Landlord Not Collecting April Rent Due to Virus
The 'silver linings' of this time in our history are beginning to come in on social media and on our news websites.
According to WMUR, there is a landlord in Maine who is not going to collect rent for the month of April due to the coronavirus. Nate Nichols of South Portland, Maine says people are not working, so he's trying to make things easier for them.
Nate said in the report,
One of my units is one family with a small child on a single income that is hourly and I know that they are under financial stress a lot of the time. It would be a lot more expensive for me to lose a tenant than to give one month’s rent off.
He posted what he was doing on Facebook in an effort to have people follow his lead and maybe do the same for others who may be having a tough time.
