Rent Control, Eviction Moratoriums & Rent Cancellation:
Government Regulation Impact on the Multifamily Industry

July 28, 2020

Multifamily property investors, owners and developers face serious threats from local, state and federal government, as well as avenues of relief. At the local level, Chicago has passed or is considering passage of a number of ordinances affecting evictions and renewals, adding months to the normal processes of apartment turnover, as well as fees that the landlord may need to pay in some circumstances. At the state level, Illinois is still actively considering rent control, as well as major pro-tenant legislation that could impact all aspects of the landlord-tenant relationship including evictions. At the federal level, there are already restrictions on properties backed by federally financed loans, and new bills are being considered that could further restrict landlords autonomy, as well as a few that could provide relief and bolster rent collections in the near term, such as renter subsidies, extensions of increased unemployment stipends and additional stimulus checks.

How does this play out on the ground between landlord and tenant? How are major apartment property owners reworking their approach to tenants including agreements that they are entering into with existing tenants, or lease term changes to new rental leases? How does this affect the attractiveness of new deals going forward? Join this special session to learn what is happening and what you can do about it.
