Renter's Toolkit

The toolkit covers questions like:

  • I won't be able to pay my rent! What do I do?
  • What can I expect if I can't pay rent during the eviction moratorium?
  • Do I have to move out if I can't pay my rent?
  • Can my landlord kick me out by force?

If you want to open a dialogue with your landlord about rent, we've created a letter template for you to use!
