You can only show vacant units. The Governor’s order prohibits landlords from entering occupied units except for emergency maintenance.

You should not be present when showing. We need to do this social distancing thing right so more of us live and the economy returns so we can buy toilet paper and eggs.

What we (Affordable Rentals)are doing is:

  • A person calls for an appointment.
  • We confirm the appointment and then send a person out to unlock the door 15 minutes in advance. Wiping the door handle clean.
  • We ask that people do not touch light switches, door knobs, faucets etc.
  • We then send someone to lock up 30 minutes after the appointed time.
  • We switched to using online applications. We built our own, in a week, but for smaller owners there is Cozy.com and Zillow rental manager. Remember if you are not paying for a product, you may be the product.
  • We now accept unemployment as stable income due to changes that make it more reliable pretty much till the end of the year

It appears the Mayor’s order permits us to continue to provide service for our tenants.


  1. Essential Infrastructure. For purposes of this Order, individuals may leave their residence to provide any services or perform any work necessary to offer, provision, operate, maintain, and repair Essential Infrastructure.

    Essential Infrastructure includes, but is not limited to: food production, distribution, and sale; construction (including, but not limited to, construction required in response to this public health emergency, hospital construction, construction of long-term care facilities, public works construction, and housing construction); building management and maintenance;

Our response to prevent the spread of disease, while protecting our tenants and properties:

  • We have closed our lobby.
  • We are performing emergency work only in occupied units. We ask that tenants alert us if there is an ill person in the property or a person that works in a high risk occupation so that we can better protect our workers
  • We are not having face to face contact with tenants.
  • We are continuing to complete vacant unit preps for properties rented for April.
