Despite All The Challenges Small BC Landlords Already Face, Now Rents Are Frozen Until July 2021
It wasn’t long ago that British Columbia landlords were informed we could raise the rent by up to 1.4% in 2021.
This has now changed.
B.C. rent freeze extended to July 2021
Premier John Horgan’s NDP government has extended the freeze on rent increases until July 10, 2021, one of the government’s first initiatives since being re-elected on Oct. 24.
Tenants Need Help To Pay Landlords The Rent They Owe
The rent freeze will not help most tenants as the rate for 2021 was already at a low of only 1.4%. If the Premier wants to help tenants not be be evicted he needs to extend other programs as well.
BC Landlords Association Calls For Extension Of The $500-a-month Rental Assistance Program
Our province was the leader in Canada in helping hard working tenants pay rent and help small landlords (who need rent for our businesses to survive) at least get some rent.
In many cases our tens of thousands of BC landlord members said when tenants were getting government help, it allowed landlords to work out payment plans with our tenants to avoid evictions.
Let’s Continue To Help Tenants And Help Landlords Avoid Evicting Our Tenants
The BC Landlords Association has always been grassroots.
We don’t have “spokesmen” with high salaries who aren’t even landlords giving empty speeches and expensing their lunches and cocktails at 5 star hotels.
They shamefully got all excited after our grassroots association took off and they tried to cash in and have failed landlords across British Columbia!
We’re landlords just like you!
