Hey renters, homeowners, landlords, and others: What do you want to know about housing rights and resources during the Covid-19 crisis? Answer our brief survey.

While the coronavirus pandemic is making work impossible for millions of Americans, rent and mortgage payments are nevertheless due on April 1. The federal government has introduced some protections for renters and homeowners against eviction and foreclosure during the current crisis. States and cities have introduced other measures. Yet the new rules apply only to some people in some places. Figuring out our housing responsibilities right now can be a challenge.

Our reporters want to answer the questions many of you have on your housing situation in an upcoming FAQ about rent and mortgage payments, leases, evictions, and foreclosures.

Update: This survey is now closed.
