As the COVID-19 crisis continues to have an impact on our stakeholders (tenants, rental applicants, property owners, and maintenance vendors) Uniform Property Management has never been more aware of our purpose and responsibilities related to property management.

Like most companies, we have temporarily switched to remote work but remain dedicated to performing our normal jobs, responsibilities, and daily tasks toward managing our properties.

The following general precautions have been implemented within our daily workflow:

We know this is an unprecedented time of uncertainty and anxiety for our residents. We also know that many of our residents are suffering from job losses, furloughs and reduced hours. Fortunately, there is help available.

Direct Payments

The federal government will be making one-time cash payments directly to our citizens. These payments should be issued during the month of April either by check or direct deposit. How much will you receive?

Enhanced Unemployment Benefits.

If you have lost your job, you can apply for state unemployment benefits. https://www.mass.gov/

Congress is enhancing state unemployment to provide more income and to cover more people.

It is important to apply as soon as possible. To help expedite aid, the federal government is funding the first week of benefits to encourage states to waive traditional waiting periods, but it may still take a couple of weeks to be processed

We’re Here to Work with You

We understand there may be a delay in your ability to access these benefits. If that’s the case, please talk to us. We are offering a number of rent flexibility options – payment plans, waived late fees and other options.

We’re all in this together and all deserve safe and clean housing. We are thankful for the hard work of our employees in keeping our community operational and all they continue to do to prepare for and mitigate the negative consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, we rely on rental payments to pay those workers and to cover our mortgage, utilities, maintenance and more.

If rental payments stop flowing, community stability and safety will be disrupted, just when peace of mind is most needed. We remain heartened by the stories of neighbors helping one another. Communities working together to stay safe is what will get us through this crisis, and we are here for you.

Sincerely,

Uniform Property Management
