Chicago Landlords, Lenders Take Solidarity Pledge
Chicago’s leading housing lenders and landlord associations, including the Chicagoland Apartment Association, have signed onto the Chicago Housing Solidarity Pledge, an effort to provide relief to beleaguered tenants and building owners negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pledge affirms that lenders and landlords may offer eligible renters and mortgage holders deferred payment agreements and other financial relief, in response to the economic fallout of COVID-19 and continuing after the pandemic.
“The Chicago Housing Solidarity Pledge represents our city’s shared commitment to our residents and building owners alike, whose homes and livelihoods have come under threat as a result of this crisis, and I am extremely proud that renters, landlords, homeowners, and lenders have all come to the table to work in partnership for our city and develop strong solutions to our shared challenges,” said Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
