At a recent meeting with Georgetowne Tenants United (GTU), Beacon Communities agreed to extend a rent freeze for 172 moderate income families in Georgetowne I through March 31, 2011.   While this is good news, tenants could still face $300 to $700 per month rent hikes in April, if federal or state legislation is not passed in time.  Another 114 tenants in Georgetowne II face the same fate in March 2012.

But the law only protects a building when the landlord is selling — and most landlords aren’t selling!  We need better legislation that will protect affordable units WHETHER OR NOT the landlord decides to sell them!
