No Rent?! - Rent Payments during Quarantine
« on: 00:53 01-Apr-2020 »
The Rada has passed a law freeing tenants from having to pay rent if due to the quarantine they cannot use the property rented.  Obviously this was primarily meant for commercial tenants with closed down shops.  However, it seems one can also argue that should apply to apartment rentals if the foreign tenant is outside Ukraine and prevented from entering Ukraine and thereby using the apartment due to the border closures.

Does anybody have practical experience with this?

Interesting concept!  I bet the bankers won't allow missed payments due to the renters not paying.

Especially since the banks and their oligarchic elite customers are those who own the majority of the damn apartments.

Yeah the banks aren't gonna let a default happen. On the other side we rent out an apartment here in BT and my wife and I told our renters that they don't have to pay rent until June.

You waived the payment or you say you want it later?  Because according to the Rada law it is not payment deferral, but waiver

Waived and it has nothing to do with the RADA's deferral.
