FAQ regarding professional rental property management 

Information intended as a brief response to frequently asked questions regarding rental property management in Minnesota. 

Hennepin County Rental Assistance

Hennepin County is offering emergency rent assistance for low-income households who have lost income due to COVID-19.

If you’ve fallen behind on rent or utilities or are worried about making payments on time this month, apply now for Hennepin County rental assistance.

Rent is still due during the statewide moratorium on evictions as part of Governor Walz’s emergency declaration. Don’t let unpaid rent add up. You may be at risk of eviction if you are behind on payments, when the state of emergency ends.

Apply as soon as possible to ensure you receive adequate support in time.
