Landlords, Tenants Association Wants Rent Waived For Three Months


The Landlords and Tenants Association of Kenya (LATAK) now wants all landlord to waive rent for their tenants for three months due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The association says that tenants should not pay rent for  April, May and June, due to disruption of the economy.

In return, the government should assist landlords that are servicing loans from commercial banks to get a six-month moratorium.

“Mr. President, on a credible mediation process, start with writing off rent for three months with no threats, notices, locking houses, disconnection of water/electricity and eviction by auctioneers,” said LATAK.
