• Worried about Rent or Eviction?
    Unable to pay your rent this month due to loss of wages? Don’t panic – your landlord should NOT try to evict you! It is the City’s goal to prevent evictions from happening in this crisis. The message below is from the City Manager, but it is NOT legal advice. This is best practice advice from a City trying its best to manage in an unprecedented public health crisis.
    If anyone is being threatened with physically being removed from their apartment at this time, CALL THE CHELSEA POLICE.  In most cases, the Landlord will be engaged in an illegal eviction, and the Police will be able to immediately stop it.
