There’s an interesting discussion on this sign as “Seen in Church Hill this morning“. Check out the Reddit post here.

Alternative idea – in a lot of cases, landlords are just normal people who are also going through this. Contact them if you’re unable to pay the full amount or at all and work with them. It’s not like it’s going to be easy to fill a unit right now – it’s better to keep someone in that’s paying a little and taking care of the place than go through the cost of kicking someone out and finding a new tenant.

A lot of landlords are being proactive in this as well, asking residents what their situation is and figuring out a plan.

Fight the man by all means, but in this case you might be just fighting another person who is going through similar tough times.

What do you think folks?

Contact your landlord immediately and speak to them like the human beings they are(at least most of them are anyway!). Speak to relatives about a loan if that’s an option. See if waiting… Read more »

I see a pay or quit notice in your future. No rent payment = no place to live.
