Op Ed: Don’t Forget-Landlords Are People Too

POA Executive Director Kelly Voicheck was recently featured on NJ.com with regard to the “People’s Bill.” 

Much has been written about the plight of tenants during this COVID-19 pandemic, but what seems to get lost in this discussion is how badly small landlords are hurting right now. For the most part, these folks are hardworking residents who have scraped together enough money for a down payment on a rental home with the hope that one day this investment would put their children through college, serve as their retirement fund, or supplement their income.

 

Now, due to the pandemic and the government’s inadequate response, these small landlords are watching that investment evaporate before their eyes. Instead of government doing something to help, property owners are being forced to comply with shortsighted government mandates that allow individuals to live rent-free with no consequences, leaving property owners scrambling for survival.
