D.C.’s COVID-19 Relief Bill Mandates Small Landlords to Offer Payment Plans

A D.C. Council-approved bill aimed at helping residents and businesses affected by the coronavirus crisis includes an amendment requiring all landlords to offer rent payment alternatives to struggling tenants.

The amendment, supported by Council members Brianne Nadeau (D-Ward 1) and Charles Allen (D-Ward 6), requires landlords with five or fewer units to establish alternative options such as payment plans for keeping tenants their homes, WTOP reported.

Smaller landlords had previously been exempt from such measures.

Council Chair Phil Mendelson argued against the amendment, noting its uncertainty about any resulting financial harm small landlords might face.
