Re: COVID-19 information update for tenants
- All rent increases that are due to take effect during the crisis will be deferred until the State of Emergency has been deemed to be over. At which point the increase will then take effect.
- For April 1 rent payment we will be waiving late fee penalties.
- No non-essential visits will be made to your home. Regularly scheduled inspections are cancelled until further notice.
- Only Emergency maintenance will be performed inside your home.
We would like to re-enforce to you that we are here to help during this difficult time. Should you need to make payment arrangements, we are available by phone at 250.286.0110. Or please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We have temporarily closed our office to public access. This is to protect our staff, the owners and tenants during this time. We are still available though and are taking calls. During the week of March 30 to April 3, we will be at the office for assistance and to accept rent payments from 10:00 until 2:00 daily. Please forgive us for not allowing access inside, but we are happy to help at the front counter. We will be accepting Debit and Cash rent payments during that time and still can be assistance setting up electronic payments. All receipts will be emailed.
