Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are stepping up to help those living in the Los Angeles-area apartment buildings they own while we’re all affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple has decided to waive rent collection for the month of April while many of their tenants are without jobs as California is under a “stay at home” order.
We’re told a manager of Pringus Property LLC — Kristen and Dax’s company that owns at least 2 residential buildings — emailed all tenants this weekend to give them the good news.
Our sources say the message expressed empathy and encouragement, and the manager — who we’re told is Dax’s sister — promised to work with residents going forward as best as possible as everyone learns to adjust to the public health crisis.
With more than 100 million Americans now ordered to stay inside, unemployment is skyrocketing and making rent is going to be a major concern across the country.
Many landlords are giving tenants a pass for now — as Kristen and Dax have. The issue will be how long the outbreak continues, and how much leniency those landlords can afford residents.
Now, if only the government would follow their lead — for everyone.
