Genuine question: why are politicians trying to extend the moratorium on evictions again? At the end of the day, what will pushing back the timeline 3 or 6 months do? The pandemic won’t be over by then, so to use that as a reason feels off.

1) impede the spread of COVID which has been shown to spread rapidly and mercilessly through indigent populations (thereby increasing costs and straining the health system) and 2) So they can adequately deploy the dollars sent to states that would allow at risk residents to pay delinquent rent, make landlords while, and prevent eviction (further preventing point number one)

It seems like rent support isn’t making it where it needs to be (based on what I’ve seen in the NYT); shouldn’t we be doubling down there? Everything I’ve read so far is about extending the moratorium without doing anything to actually resolve the root cause. I highly doubt that people can pay back rent without rent support, so moving the goalpost without figuring out how to deploy dollars earmarked for that cause and support those at risk of eviction doesn’t seem to help much imo. And then there’s the unspoken cold truth too that some of these evictions were meant to happen anyway in the pre-pandemic environment.

As a landlord going through the eviction process it’s pretty cumbersome to get the tenant out we given them concessions but they just stop paying all together. It’s a harsh reality in the tenant- landlord world right now!

Yes- nobody is thinking about who holds the bag for people not paying. The people most effected probably lived paycheck to paycheck there is just not a scenario where they are going to be able to make up a year of missed rent… At some point you need to pay the piper. I personally think this is going to be our next major crisis…even more so if we keep kicking the can down the road.

Anon is so close

Because the amount of debt accrued over the the pandemic is extremely high - especially in the service industry where many individuals (millions) lived pay check to pay check and may have lost jobs or income in some form or another (less tips, increased need to be at home for child care, etc). These individuals need time to make up the ground they lost to afford basic things like bills, insurance, etc. - this def is not a cure all solution, but giving some breathing room for a few months to catch up without fear of loosing your home or choosing between food and housing is a big relief

It has- but only the last couple months have things been close to a new “normal “ with business hiring and operation. There is no perfect time to open things up but giving individuals time since things reopened to find stable income sources and build some form of base would help all parties. Renters would have good, stable housing. Landlords have happy, paying leasers who won’t foreclose or get evicted. I agree it’ll need to end, but the lesser the impact the better. Also not you OP, but some other comments are showing so much disregard for income privilege it’s disgusting

Before lifting the moratorium, open “all” the business.

Merrill Advisors - I have a client with an account at Merrill and am told that they have a money fund available which insures up to an aggregate of $5,000,000 in FDIC coverage. Is this a CDARs program and they are misinformed or does such a program exist and what is it called? I was told $5mm in coverage with daily liquidity which obviously wouldn’t apply to CDARs. Many thanks!
