The South Carolina State Supreme Court’s moratorium on eviction notices is scheduled to end on May 1st. People unable to pay rent during COVID-19 could be at risk of becoming homeless if property owners and tenants don’t work together.
Trident United Way urges people who are struggling to make payments reach out to their providers and work out a payment plan. While landlords can pause evictions and utility companies are pausing shut offs, clients will eventually be held liable for their housing and utility bills.
“We are asking banks, rental owners and utilities to be UNITED with their clients and find a way to move forward together in these challenging times,” Amanda Lawrence, Trident United Way vice president of community impact, said. “This is not a time where people should be losing their homes because of a virus they had no control over. There’s only one way we’re going to get through this: united together.”
