Executive Order |
Issued by Gov. Gary Herbert 4/1/2020
You may have heard or seen social media posts about the Governors executive order regarding rents and evictions as a result of the impact COVID-19 and subsequent ‘ORDERS’ and ‘RESTRICTIONS’.
What this order says is:
IF a tenant, who is current with their rental obligations as of 3/31/2020, has:
a. Suffered a loss of wages or job loss as a result of COVID-19 OR
b. has undergone self isolation or quarantine in compliance with an order issued by the Utah Department of Health or a local health department in response to COVID-19 OR
c. has tested positive for COVID-19
may defer (delay) your rent payments until 5/15/2020. In this time landlords/property managers may not charge late fees or commence eviction for non-payment.
The RENTS are still due and payable. IF they are not paid current by 5/15/2020 then landlords/property managers may commence to charge late fees, commence eviction proceedings, charge other fees in accordance with the terms of the lease.
Our suggestion is:
IF you can pay rent, do so. Otherwise you may find yourself in a deeper financial hole.
If you feel you need to utilize this order and defer your rent payment please contact our office with your plan for repayment. Our policy is to comply with the executive order. We will not charge late payment fees from 4/1-5/15.
We encourage tenants to do all you can to make the rent payment by seeking temporary employment, seeking assistance from family/friends or clergy and where possible seeking public assistance through unemployment services.
We’re glad you’re part of our professional family – Thank You.
