LANDLORD MITIGATION: Protecting the Owners’ Assets

RIHousing offers a Landlord Mitigation program that offers owners limited financial assistance in the event that a tenant causes damage to the apartment in excess of normal wear and tear, non-payment of rent should the tenant abandon the property with a balance of unpaid rent, and vacancy payment for up to three (3) months if the tenant leaves without proper notification and the landlord is unable to rent the apartment. Landlords must notify RIHousing staff when issues first arise to prevent and/or mitigate damages. Coverage is limited to $2,000 and extends for the first two (2) years of tenancy, or until funds are depleted, starting on the move-in date. Landlords must submit damage claims to RIHousing to the attention of Knijia Sailsman, Housing Stabilization Coordinator at ksailsman@rihousing.com.
