    No rent suspension. It will hurt economy in San Jose. How about give three months rent fund from the salaries which people purposed this!

    "Rent Suspension" is clearly a violation of the constitution. It takes away landlord's right to form and execute contract with tenant. Landlords depend on rental income to pay mortgag, property tax, insurance and maintenance expenses and to survive at this difficult time. If landlords are forced to waive rent, please provide them credits for property tax payment. So I strongly oppose this rent suspension proposal.

    Rent suspension.

    This is a ridiculous proposal that does not consider the direct financial impact to the small landlords who relies on rental income to fulfill their mortgage and property taxes and insurance obligation.
    This proposal could largely harm the financial balance of the small landlords and resulting in severely adverse impact including increasingly foreclosure in SJ

    Rent suspension is unconstitutional and divides the community. Whoever came up with that idea doesn’t have any knowledge of constitution and is clueless about how to unite the community during the difficult time. They waste tax payer’s resource and time. We deserve better leaders.

    Landlord also has bills to pay including mortgages and property taxes and numerous other bills, this could lead to many landlord to bankrupt and create further problems to the society. I ask the City Council to focus on real solutions to this crisis, such as financial assistance to tenants to help them pay rent or to landlords who are deferring rent.

    Item 8.3 is a unconstitutional proposal. It damages property owners' right. Property owners are also impacted by Covid 19. They need to pay property tax, mortgage and bills relying on the rental income. Government should provide help to both tenants and landlords who suffered the economic impact by the virus. Government should help tenants pay rent if they cannot afford in a short term. Government has no right to force landlords to take the burden. Strongly oppose Item 8.3

    Rent suspension by Carracci
    And peralez can’t solve tenants problem but creat new problems to landlords, contractors, property maintainers and so on. More families lost pay check if landlords lost their incomes.

    As a landlord, like other tenants, I also have financial challenges to pay my bills and raise children during this pandemic time.
