Still nothing for mortgage/rent relief in Florida(New York has a moratorium).


Mortgages are done via the bank itself, you need to contact them for a deferral.

I plan on paying half on the 1st since I only worked half the month.


You're better off not paying your mortgage at all and getting a deferral.

I rent. The landlord wants the full amount on the 1st and said next month we could do half but it would come out of our last month's.

As it stands, it appears the lockdown will continue throughout April with even tougher restrictions which means more people out of work.

Florida's unemployment is $275 a week(the same as it was 10 years ago). My rent is $2300 plus about $200 in utilities. Even with the $1200 stimulus, the numbers do not add up, especially when you consider groceries and other essential items plus things like car insurance.

My point is, we need the Governor of Florida and others(New York and California have already acted) to step up and give us rent and mortgage relief. Perhaps we need a federal mandate from Trump.

Even though many landlords have had mortgage payments deferred, we still need a mandate because many will not do the right thing.

If nothing is done, we will face a housing crisis.

Furthermore, providing rent/mortgage relief will.mean the average person will need less aide from unemployment and 'stimulus' packages since this is most of our biggest expense.

I agree and though my wife and I are working right now, we’re sending whatever money we can to our family members who are not. We’ve tapped into the meager savings we have to keep them afloat. We’ve got a 30 year mortgage and we’re 2.5 years into paying it off. In the grand scheme of all of this, adding 4 months to the back end of that mortgage is nothing and will allow us to prop up our family members for the duration of this.
