KC TENANTS DECLARE 'RENT ZERO' VICTORY AS JACKSON COUNTY COURT SHUT DOWN EXTENDS EVICTION AND DEBT COLLECTION MORATORIUM!!!



There's a great deal of talk about American "liberation" during the coronavirus crisis but one Kansas City movement has achieved quantifiable progress in their mission to free poverty-stricken locals from their bills.

To wit . . .

KC TENANTS CELEBRATE CONTINUED JACKSON COUNTY COURTS SHUT DOWN & EVICTION MORATORIUM!!!

Here's the notice and the group's perspective on local pandemic legal barriers to payment for goods & services as cowtown social justice advocacy advances:

KC TENANTS Social Media Celebration: Jackson County, Missouri has EXTENDED its eviction moratorium AND includes a suspension of execution of garnishments, through May 18, 2020.

WHAT THIS MEANS: This means there will be NO hearings, NO eviction judgments, NO sheriffs at the door, AND debt collectors can't take wages and bank account money from people they have judgements against (debt collectors can't take your stimulus payments).

They are doing good work.

I didn't know about the eviction moratorium extension until they posted it.

You may not agree with their positions but at least they are keeping the community informed!

^^^ True.

I think if you think of their work as a resource and not JUST advocacy, you get a better idea of what they're after.

Coronavirus freedom.

Doesn't sound like a very bright future.

It still does not eliminate any debt either. You might not get kicked out but you're just going to keep running up a debt that will be worth coming for in the end and your welfare and tiny non 40 hour week salary can and will be garnished. Nothing is free and those who think it is are in for a huge butthurt.

Next up for the "social justice" activists:

Coronavirus debt forgiveness.

If it's good enough for the banks. Then people might was well get some too.

Let's get those $600 checks GOING!

Nope on it all.

Shut it down. Bitches.

Agree with @1:26.

Actually, this is just delaying the inevitable and will ultimately be use to keep accruing DEBT against these same poor people.

Bad leadership all around, starting with the mayor.

I'm taking the air conditioner out. Maybe they will move.

^^^ Wrong.

You'll be fined heavily if you and they will own your apartment complex.

I can't pay the mortgage if tenants don't pay rent. The banks will own it and of course the banks will let you live there for free.

You were hypercritical of KCTENANTS from day one. Now you are reduced to predicting butthurt at some future date. Pathetic.

What about those poor repossession agents that you're putting out of work how are they going to pay their bills?

An air conditioner is a luxury, unlike a heater. Nothing illegal about a lack of air conditioning.

Rhetorical, but the courts are down due to the virus; nothing else. Good PR for KC Tenants and Mayor Q, but ultimately the rent does come due and due in full. The landlord doesn't have anything to gain from evictions, only rent.

Slumloards aka property management companies look at the eviction moratorium and be thinking...hmm ya I am not getting rent now, but once the moratorium is over I can legally demand all rent due past and present, and once the renter cant pay I can legally evict them and sue them for the rest of their lease get my bonus and re rent the dump down at power and light. If it wasnt mandated that there is a moritorium on rent, property owners would have worked hard to kick your ass out and go after you for the rest of your unpaid lease...its just the way the greedy rental world works....so stop renting and buy a place!

Why are Landlords scum and tenants vermin?
If there is a lease signed, the landlord should provide what is promised and a tenant should pay what is promised. Pretty simple. However; when hard times hit, a good landlord will work with the tenant to get back on track. And a good tenant will do everything they can to get back on track. Communicating in a productive way can make all of this happen more easily. Bottom line is just do YOUR part. Look at yourself in the mirror and asked honestly “Am I doing my part?”
