Because there exists a misconception that rental housing owners enjoy large margins and can continue operating in the absence of rent payments, and with so much discussion around rents during COVID-19, the National Apartment Association (NAA) has released resources that help explain the breakdown of $1 of rent.
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic and the financial hardships some residents are experiencing, as a courtesy, the National Apartment Association has released the following two forms for your voluntary use:
1. Notice of Temporary Waiver of Late Fees
Allows operators to waive late fees incurred by residents who, as a result of COVID-19, are experiencing loss of wages, unemployment or unexpected medical expenses.
2. Payment Plan Agreement (COVID-19 Pandemic)
Allows a resident who, as a result of COVID-19, is experiencing loss of wages, unemployment or unexpected medical expenses to pay rent and other sums at a later date.

The National Apartment Association (NAA), in partnership with the Texas Apartment Association (TAA), has prepared preliminary guidance and FAQs that housing providers throughout the country can use to better understand their rights and responsibilities under the Centers for Disease and Control’s (CDC) eviction order, which went into effect September 4.
This guidance is not intended to be state specific and should be used in conjunction with advice from local legal counsel to interpret these requirements in light of existing federal, state and local eviction laws.
People who have confirmed COVID-19 and are in isolation, and people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 and are self-monitoring, are doing the right thing and helping to protect their communities. They should never be harassed and bullied, including through social media. We should offer compassion, support via phone and texts, and assistance as appropriate, but never hostility or judgment.
