SF’s Biggest Landlord Forgives 50% of Missed Rent for 4 Months
Thanks to KQED for letting us know that San Francisco’s largest landlord, Veritas, has pledged to forgive 50% of missed rent from April through July for residential and commercial tenants along with pausing any evictions and rent increases throughout the end of 2020.
But tenant advocates say the offer doesn’t go far enough. The pledge comes with a caveat that tenants must enter an agreement to pay back the other half of their rent over the next 12 months.
