    We will see but I seriously doubt a reasonable land lord will want to evict a reasonable tenant that just d can't make full payment of rent because of the Covid situation. Just as I doubt reasonable tenants were skipping rent altogether because the government would not allow evictions. Hopefully there are enough reasonable people ot there to avoid mass homelessness. Frankly, if there were unreasonable people skipping rent altogether when they had the means to pay it, I would not feel any sympathy or empathy for them. As for unreasonable landlords, local government can and should deal with them.

    Reasonable landlord? Problem is many are suffering the same problems due to income collapsing across the board. There will inevitability be a spike in homelessness.

    We are looking at post 1929 depression levels at the optimistic side of the spectrum.

    Reasonable landlords would make some sort of accommodation rather than lose a tenant with no likely replacement. Partial payments are better than no payments at all.

    Now we add massive homelessness and poverty into the mixer.

    Wonder what prize will come out at the end of all this.

    As to the landlords though remember unless they have paid off their house and that house or houses they still have bills to pay ( plus additional bills of their own and to maintain the rental property or properties, so if they were to evict on the grounds that THEIR creditors were going to foreclose or shut off services to them are they really being unreasonable?

    That works if it works for the landlord. In other words, if the landlord only needs a part of the payment in order for the math to work that may be an option, but if the landlord needs that money to avoid issues him/herself then the partial payments may not matter.

    Indeed. A significant impact increase in homelessness and lack of security in regard to accommodation is the inevitable result as the dominoes fall.

    How does evicting the tenants pay their bills? Having no tenant at all does not give one income. Eviction also costs money .Rather than evicting a tenant that has been responsible, up until that tenant lost income enough to pay full rent each month and at a time when finding new rent paying tenants may be very unlikely, it is preferable to come to some accommodation which might include discounting the rent or allowing the tenant to do work around the premises in lieu of rent. Additionally most banks would rather come to an accommodation than foreclose. There are a number of options available to both renters and landlords other than eviction.

    but if the landlord needs the entire payment or payments in order to make the math work what good is it?

    If the land lord evicts a tenant willing to pay as much as is possible and has no one to replace that tenant to even pay a portion of the rent what good is that? The landlord has spent more money to evict and has no money to pay his/her bills.

    As for government action to keep people in their residences so they won't be evicted I would suggest that instead of not allowing eviction, the government pay the rent for any tenant that cannot afford it. Not for people that did not lose a penny because of shutdowns but only for those that actually have been financially harmed by the shutdowns. Those that still had the income the previously had like retired people, people on social welfare or essential workers did not need to be given anything. Under the no eviction rule people that have enough to pay rent because their income never was reduced can refuse to pay rent. That is a grave injustice.

    I guess we’re about to see if landlords in our country are “reasonable.”
