its the slumlords type property owners who wont give them a chance during this time, they have no interst in covid19 or what it does to business and money, and they rather have it closed than let someone not pay even when closed by government rules. I knew this woman in manhattan, she kept an apartment closed in the upper east side for 3 years than give it less than 15K a month in rent. so she forwent couple hundred K in rent money income. who knows how they think. lets hope its not terrible
And that is why reasonable landlords will forgive some rent because they want their tenants to survive. It's better to lose a few months rent than lose a long standing tenant who has been paying their bills. If you have empty space in a dying economy, it's going to empty for a long time.
