On Thursday, May 14, 2020, the San Antonio City Council rejected a proposed ordinance that would have forced landlords to perform additional measures before evicting tenants. The ‘Proposed Right to Cure Process,’ rejected with a 5-6 vote, would’ve required landlords to provide tenants a ‘notice of potential eviction’ and a 30-day grace period to resolve delinquent accounts before starting the eviction process. Evictions and debt collections can proceed next week.
Many times, Landlords are in no better position to bear the financial burden caused by COVID-19 than tenants. Allowing unpaid rents to pile up would only cause further financial distress on both parties. If you are a tenant facing financial difficulties due to the coronavirus pandemic, notify your landlord or Property Manager as soon as possible about any potential delinquencies you may have and learn more about the COVID-19 Rental Assistant Program here: https://www.sanantonio.gov/NHSD/Programs/FairHousing?fbclid=IwAR1iEWRo1lKYHwQYJ2KKGJADIWNNBjWr9z30vYjTuJUSa2XKmDOqI9hAbOE.
