This week, readers visited Brick Underground for stories on the challenges of making rent or leasing a new apartment during the pandemic. One story describes how a New Yorker organized the neighbors in his building and convinced their landlord to allow everyone to pay half their rent for the month of April.
Another article focused on how to protect yourself if you are leasing an apartment that you have not seen in person. It's a good idea to make some additions to your lease that address the condition of the apartment and cover you if your move is delayed. And if you are a current tenant worried about paying your rent, another article explains how you are protected from eviction now for non-payment.
