Hi everyone, I need some advice regarding tenants no longer paying rent due to the coronavirus. A couple moved into my negatively geared investment property at the end of February 2020, paid 4 weeks rent of $500pw and for the past 2 weeks have stopped all payments. My property agent said this was due to one of the tenants losing his job (owns his own barber shop). The agent did not mention anything about his partner who is a nurse, so I am assuming she is still working? The problem is, they are not from Australia and therefore are not eligible for any kind of rebate from the government or any rental assistance. I also do not have landlord insurance (I know...big mistake). I did ask the property agent for some advice, however, he has mentioned he is not legally allowed to give any. The agent did say he is awaiting on documentation from the tenants regarding their financial hardship, but this was 2 weeks ago! As I mentioned above, this is a negatively geared property and my only property, I cannot afford repayments if the tenant is not paying anything at all. It also makes me think they are wanting a free ride as they have not even tried to negotiate a reduction in rent, they have simply stopped all payments. I would really like some advice on what to do next. I will definitely be chasing up the agent to more information/evidence from the tenants but aside from that I am at a loss. Thanks in advance!
