  • Landlords are shooting themselves in the foot. They're going to need to fill these apartments, and if they don't rent to people with eviction history, it will be difficult to do so. Furthermore there will be no way to determine who is a bad renter and was evicted, and who is not. Typical landlord lack of foresight, really.

  • The argument was to make it more holistic not just “cancel rent” like wtf! There are many small property owners (maybe renting out their 2nd home) w mortgages and if you don’t pay rent, that’s the mortgage. There’s forbearance but no mortgage payments forgiveness. People are going through a tough time but passing the buck it’s not the solution. Government should’ve stepped in and help not just give trillions to corporate America to still lay off people.

  • Eviction is awful. And I'm sure most landlords didn't feel good about evicting people during a pandemic when so many people are out of work. But the landlords have expenses to pay too. It's so sad. Nobody should be at risk of being homeless due to circumstances beyond their control. And a big thank you to that man for waiving the rent for all of his tenants. Much respect 👊

Buying houses they don't need, renting them out at twice the cost of a mortgage and then not even using the extra to keep the house nice. Landlords deserve to suffer a little because they haven't earned the money they made all these years off the backs of the working class. Lazy ass bums the WHOLE LOT of them. Literally.

  • As much as I love this show, this particular segment fails to highlight that, while there are probably more bad landlords than good ones, property owners are hemorrhaging money while tenants cannot pay rent. Owning rental property comes with a lot of fees and a lot of owners are still paying mortgage on those properties. Not every landlord is a money-grubbing elite. A lot of them are modest people who cannot afford to go without collecting rent, which can lead to debt and no source of income. Many are older folks who have retired and would be forced to find some kind of work to support themselves.

  • Landlords aren't particularly rich either, some of those people are bad business people that are making maybe $100 in profit a month. The government should've stopped banks from collecting on mortgages first especially since they preach so much about small business. Of course some landlords are going to freak out, they aren't just in danger of losing their rental home but the bankruptcy could also put them on the street. Other landlords are just scummy morons and I hope their tenants continue to not pay and can save their money to find a better place.

  • Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddy Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddy Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson. #spreadtheawareness #justiceformichael #hedeservedbetter

    • @Taylor Reeves well my point was that the person who buys the property is likely to be just another landlord. I don't know about you, but I'm not really a player in this game of monopoly, the people with all the properties and who control the housing market already owned it all before I was born, and they don't care about me to begin with. They care about their property appreciating in value, and gaining profit from it.

  • Its also surprising more expensive overall when people get evicted esp with kids. the renter will prob lose their job cuz you need a place to keep a job. and need to find homes of the kids and then their are more cost to other services like more homeless and and more emergency services. Just like the flint water crisis it is(would) be cheaper to just spend the money upfront rather than save money now and pay much more later to fix the problems caused. Also I have no sympathy for the landlords that depend on majority or all of their tenants rent to pay their mortgage.

  • The very first part of the segment needs to be restated again and again: rents have gone up much faster than wages. We need to look at why that is, and then figure out how to change that fact. The problems need to be understood before they can be addressed. Trouble is, there is so much money invested in having us not even be able to look at them that it's unlikely that there will be any concerted effort to change. After all, as conservatives love to say, "you should be thankful just to have a job," and whenever that's the case, you can bet that widespread and deep economic hardship is a fact of life.

  • Seems people don't understand that landlords have bills piling up too......some landlords have a job that is their main source of income, but now it's gone, rent is the only thing feeding them.......and you want to tell them that they shouldn't try to get a paying tenant. You throw out statistics saying one group over another gets evicted........ didn't say a word about why So far the bills out of the house concerning rent payment work like this......landlord must enter into a contract with HUD, once HUD is in the door they can come around and make up stuff to find you, their fines will quickly pay them back for the rent(10 fold) Now you decide you must get out because being a landlord under contract with HUD is going to bankrupt you must sell to HUD at what they call fair market thanks, and thankfully the senate has voted this socialism maker down and I don't have to tell my tenants I'm not entering into HUD contract. In 2010, if somebody got fired, couldn't pay rent, would have been acceptable to evict them? or should they be allowed to stay rent free?

  • You make it sound like every landlord is an evil rich person/corporation that can just pay endless mortgage payments without income. Most landlords do not own the houses they rent. They have a mortgage. Some of them are rich people and big evil corporations, and some are disabled individuals like myself running a small business. If my tenants don't pay the rent, I can't pay the mortgage, and if that happens they will be evicted for sure. I am not rich, I drive a 20 year old truck, and I live in a small house...all of my tenants have nicer cars than me, and mostly nicer stuff in general. Some of them make more money than I do!

  • What I'm curious about, when all these people are evicted, who is going to rent the place? Nobody else has any money either.

  • My only question is what about the landlords who don’t own their homes outright? Do they have a moratorium on their mortgage? Cause if not then I understand why they need to keep collecting.

  • On the devil's defense, property owners also need to pay taxes, possibly loans and well... bills, maybe they do deserve a bit of listenning?

  • It is now December 26th. Covid relief today waits on a lame duck president who is playing golf. GOP refuses to increase payments. Unemployment enhancements end for many today. Evictions will begin soon. We have been reeling for almost a year with an actual worldwide plague. Now imagine most renters and many homeowners on the street. In January. With their kids. How many more cases of Covid will happen because of the exposure. Not to mention common sicknesses,frostbite,hypothermia and literally freezing to death. Watch the crime rates rocket with so many starving people. How many 'trespassers' sleeping in the woods and fields will be shot by the 2nd Amendment fanatics? For that matter how many homegrown terrorists will use this disaster to destroy and revolt? Yesterday an RV blew up and took out an AT&T hub,knocking out communications and grounding planes. I've wandered from the topic but look at what has occurred since this segment. This is the 08 crisis on meth. With clowns,fireworks and an insane ringmaster.

  • Ummmm. Should they be cancelling mortgage payments also? Plus landlords borrowed to buy the buildings they rent out. The whole state of affairs is a shit show.home owners are also paying property tax... should all that be excused also? School tax? ...

  • 0:31 The other problem is why didn't congress help everyone affected from the Tenant up to the companies who still need money. I am not happy the cause of the problem is the state and local government now demanding money or let crime run loose. They could had left things alone and say if someone is sick they stay home not put millions out of their jobs creating havoc. People and business need the money. Yes foreclosures should be suspended and enforcing tax collections should of been suspended where in many cases people who rent are also affected.
