Can I invoice my tenant for rent and other charges?

Under the governor’s moratorium, landlords may not treat unpaid rent or other charges as amounts owing if the nonpayment was a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and occurred on or after February 29, 2020. This rule prohibits, among other things, invoicing or withholding amounts from the security deposit.

This rule does not apply if the landlord offers and the resident refused or failed to comply with a payment plan that was reasonable based on the resident’s financial, health, and other circumstances.
