 Now with an economic uncertainty pattern the Atlanta commercial real estate market is still moving forward. However the multifamily sector has seen many different ups and downs during this crisis. Recently our lawmakers are putting new regulations in place. These regulations are dealing with the eviction proceedings of renters. Furthermore there are many different concessions that are made about these proceedings. We will dive into a few of them.


Regulators are Making Changes


 According to an article on marketwatch.com by Jacob Passy. He gives a brief overview about the new regulations. Currently the Regulators at the federal Housing Finance Agency are in acting regulations. They are to ensure tenants are being protected. They want to make sure that the renters know and understand what their rights are. As well as not having landlords taking advantage of renter’s. In order to stall evictions these regulations are being put in place.


However the regulations do not apply to all landlords. Mortgages as well as completely owned properties play a major part. So just because a landlord is evicting tenants does not mean that they will be in violation of these regulations.


Landlords Mortgage plays a large part


Currently one of the major determining factors is how a property is leveraged by the owner. If the current mortgage is being backed by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae  landlord has to follow the new regulations. These regulations include notifying their tenants about protections as well as giving them proper notice before eviction proceedings take place.


 However just because the loan is backed by these agencies does not mean that the landlord is still required to follow these regulations. They only apply if the landlord is in a forbearance agreement with the lender. A forbearance agreement means that there is a grace period on paying the mortgage. In other cases a discounted rate is given. Landlords are not allowed to evict tenants or charge late fees on the basis of non-payment.
