Episode 034 – Eviction Moratorium – What Owners, Tenants and You Need to Know Right Now

The narrative around an Eviction Moratorium communicates a false positive that amounts to no more than a strategy to boost political popularity while failing to explain or plan for what happens in the future.

Who are the stakeholders? Far more reaching than just landlords and tenants.
Joanna Wong, my Co-Host on this episode of Realty Speak, and I are joined by Attorneys Nativ Winiarsky, Jim Marino and Lisa Faham-Selzer of Kucker Marino Winiarsky & Bittens and they expertly lead us to an understanding of what is really happening here.
Tenant, landlord or otherwise; this is a must listen that will hopefully get you talking – to each other.
