German government promises relief for renters amid coronavirus crisis

The German government will introduce new measures to protect tenants unable to pay their rent as a result of the coronavirus crisis. Renters will not be evicted from April 1st to September 30th for failure to pay rents.
The bill will be adopted on Monday in the Federal Cabinet before being debated by the Bundestag (German Parliament) on Wednesday.Despite the relief, renters who are able to pay will be required to do so during the time period.

Furthermore, the bill only suspends evictions – meaning that renters who are unable to pay will need to repay once the economic impacts of the virus start to improve.
