As of April 5, just 69% of people had paid their rent for the month of April, according to data from the National Multifamily Housing Council.




By the same time last month, 82% of renters had paid their rent for the month.




While cities and states have put a pause on eviction, there have been growing calls for leaders to freeze rents amid the ongoing pandemic.




Even as cities and states across the country announce halts on evictions, people who can't pay their rent are also accruing late fees with no idea where they'll get the money to eventually pay off their debts.

Just around 70% of tenants paid their rent for the month of April — meaning about a third of renters did not pay rent to their landlord this month, according to data from the National Multifamily Housing Council and a group of companies that collect data about real estate.
According to the NMHC, as of April 5, just 69% of people had paid their rent for the month of April. By March 5, 2020, 81% of renters had paid their rent for the month. In April 2019, 82% of renters had paid their rent for the month.
"The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in significant health and financial challenges for apartment residents and multifamily owners, operators and employees in communities across the country," Doug Bibby, president of NMHC, said in a press release. "However, it is important to note that a large number of residents met their obligations despite unparalleled circumstances, and we will see that figure increase over the coming weeks."
