From Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez Desk - Important that Renters know Their Rights

With the rent due today, it is important that renters know their rights. There are resources available to help you:

✔️ Your landlord cannot evict you, but you must notify them of your inability to pay either before the missed rent payment or within seven (7) days of a missed rent payment
✔️ It is illegal for your landlord to require documents to prove your hardship due to COVID-19
✔️ No late fees or interest are allowed to be charged during the emergency
✔️ Utility shut-offs and lockouts are also illegal
✔️ If you receive an eviction notice, or other notices similar to the above from your landlord, or have any questions about your rights as a tenant during this time, regardless of immigration status, please know that HCID is ready to help you
✔️Call HCID’s hotline at 866‐557‐7368 Monday ‐ Friday, between the hours of 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, and weekends, Saturday and Sunday, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
