Are you a Binghamton Property Owner facing financial hardship due to the Covid-19 moratorium on rental evictions?
My name is Michael Reid. I am a rental property owner in Binghamton NY, currently owning 23 properties. I work more than 60 hours a week, and I am struggling to pay bills. If you own rental property in Upstate NY you are probably experiencing the same struggles I am.
2020 has been an unprecedented year on so many levels. The New York State government has done a LOT to help those negatively impacted by COVID-19. In fact, a large percentage of the population over the last 6 months has received more money on unemployment than they did working, and many others on public assistance received the same guaranteed income they are accustomed to.
After a brief investigation of the 23 properties I own, I am not aware of a single tenant that has actually been negatively impacted financially by COVID-19. Yet the state government has made it abundantly clear that despite being better off financially, tenants cannot be evicted for any reason including non-payment of rent. Some would argue that our State government has actually encouraged tenants not to pay their rent.
I think we are all struggling and trying to figure out how to protect our properties, our investments and in many cases our livelihood!!!!!
Do you feel like the rights to your property have been stripped away by New York State?
Are you frustrated and hurt with the power New York State has given to non-paying tenants?
Are you frustrated and angry with your inability to protect your own property?
Are you baffled by the free pass given to your tenants while you remain responsible for your mortgage payment, taxes, water bills and more?
Are you confused and angry wondering how courts can open to site you for code violations, in most cases created by the non-paying tenant, yet courts cannot open for evictions that would give back possession of your property and the ability to address the code violations?
Then it’s time to do something about it! By joining Binghamtonpropertyunite.com you will be able to:
- Share information about problem tenants in an effort to protect yourself as well as your fellow landlord.
- Connect and discuss the issues we are facing as property owners with like-minded individuals.
And most importantly
- Join forces to promote legislative change that will give us back the rights to our own properties.
Currently I am seeking the following changes:
- To abate all water/sewer charges incurred by non-paying tenants during the time period where courts were closed.
- A prorated abatement of real estate taxes for the same time period.
- The ability to evict “John” & “Jane Doe” from your property versus having to know the exact names of all occupants that you may not have consented to renting to.
