“Because I have the good fortune and of being able to afford it and the privilege of being in the owner class, I just let them know I would not be collecting rent in April,” he added.

The landlord, whose name is Nathan Nichols, also urged other landlords to follow his example, suggesting that it would enormously benefit a demographic who need help.

“I ask any other landlords out there to take a serious look at your own situation and consider giving your tenants some rent relief as well.”

After posting this, the response that Nichols received was stratospheric. 17,000 Facebook users shared the post, and several thousand more liked and commented. With any luck, other landlords may follow  Nichols’s lead.
