Renting during Covid19


New Forum Member
I have a unit that needs to be rented for May 1st. Is anyone else in this situation. I don’t want to show it. I also don’t want to lose rent.

Not sure this helps.......

You don’t want to show it......You loose rent.

We don’t have any vacancies at the moment but this is what we would consider. It doesn’t hurt to advertise to see if there is interest, and build a list of interested people worse case. Ideally the property has been cleaned and empty for at least 2 weeks so you could include that in your listing to reassure people. You could offer video viewings, we actually did this with 2 properties last year for people moving from Ontario and they have been great tenants, same questions, same application form and ref checks. You could also talk to a local property management company to ask what they are doing. I spoke to one and they said, still doing showings but they wait until the property is empty.

Of course if there is a full mandated lockdown by the government that’s a different matter and landlords will have to manage to carry empty properties the best we can with whatever help is available.
