Nevada Renters Have Relief Options During Coronavirus

Renters in the U.S. tend to have lower incomes and less stable jobs than homeowners, creating greater anxiety for them during the current health crisis.

But there are resources to help.

Lauren Pena, an attorney with the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, helped author a toolkit for renters, which explains their legal rights. specifically regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

She says the governor's emergency housing directive suspends most evictions and covers those who lease single family homes and any other rentals.

"That applies to people living in weeklies, that applies to people living in apartments, and this suspension is going to last until the state of emergency is lifted by the governor," she points out.

The coronavirus pandemic has caused widespread layoffs and other financial hardships. New data from the National Multifamily Housing Council shows that one-third of Americans did not pay April rent before the due date.

The governor's directive does not order rent forgiveness by property owners, but if you already know you can't pay the rent on May 1, Pena encourages you to contact the landlord as soon as possible.

"Show them that you've lost your job, that you hope to be rehired in X amount of time, work out a payment plan -- if there's a plan that will work for you, partial payments, but make sure that everything is in writing," she urges.

Pena adds that renters also should be aware that the governor's order has suspended all late fees during the current emergency.

"Let's say that you can only pay half of your rent this month," she explains. "Well, your landlord can't say, 'Oh, but you owe me half and then you'll owe me another 5% for being late this month.' No, that shouldn't go into the calculation."

Previous studies have shown that at least 45% of renters say they do not have enough in a savings account to cover a single month's rent payment.

WHO ARE WE
Because we are an independent broadcast media radio service, the perception could be that we are all the same. Nothing could be further from the truth. The editorial material to be aired on our media services is prepared independently from other media outlets. We may express a "difference of opinion" or "very different editorial philosophies" regarding our news reporting from other competing news staff. This allows us to be a separate voice in the community. Thus, because of our different editorial philosophies, we may operate under a JOA (Joint Operating Agreement), which is a U.S. Justice Department approved method of maintaining competitive distinct voices in radio markets.

Las Vegas Public Radio Inc. is a Nevada non-profit corporation (Nevada Taxpayer ID: 1016003951-001) and operates under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3). Donors can deduct contributions they make to Las Vegas Public Radio under IRC Section 170.
