me getting my coronavirus check which is exactly equivalent to my monthly rent

@dankwraith why do landlords need a bailout??

are they somehow rapidly bleeding money when they don't get rent for two months?

@meena a lot of them use rentals to pay their mortgages. the whole housing economy is a pyramid scheme for banks

@witchfynder_finder @dankwraith so if we suspended rent, we'd have to suspend interest, too

or we could just suspend private property,

@dankwraith i got an email from the property manager stating that the owner was not in a position to offer rent relief at this stage, unless the government provided some form of support in lieu of rental income for the owners financial obligations.

i sent them a link to the government assistance form.
