Temporary Relocation Payment Schedule

Temporary relocation assistance is owed when:

  1. The landlord takes action to terminate a tenancy temporarily; or

  2. When the tenant has temporarily vacated the rental unit:

    (i) in compliance with a governmental agency’s order to vacate;
    (ii) due to health and safety conditions, as defined; or
    (iii) as part of an approved Capital Improvement Plan.

 

Temporary Relocation Payment Amount

For the first 60 days from the date the tenant vacates the rental unit, the landlord shall make Temporary Relocation Payments to the tenant until the tenant re-occupies the unit within seven calendar days after the landlord has informed the tenant in writing that the repairs have been made or the Health and Safety Conditions eliminated and the tenant may re-occupy the rental unit.

Applicable Temporary Relocation Payments shall be calculated on a daily basis and paid at least on a weekly basis. A tenant continues to pay rent to the landlord while receiving Temporary Relocation Payments.

If the work necessary to comply with the governmental order or to correct the Health of Safety Conditions takes longer than 60 days to complete, the landlord shall make Rent Differential Payments to the tenant until either the work is completed and the tenant re-occupies the rental unit within seven calendar days after the landlord informs the tenant in writing that the rental unit may be re-occupied, or the tenant finds alternative, permanent housing. A tenant shall not pay rent to the landlord while receiving a Rent Differential Payment.

The Rent Differential Payment is calculated by subtracting the lawful rent the tenant is paying at the time the tenant vacated the rental unit from the Fair Market Rent, as set forth below, based on the number of bedrooms in the rental unit from which the tenant has been displaced. If the Fair Market Rent is less than the lawful rent paid by the tenant, then no Rent Differential Payment is required.
