The landlord, who owns 12 rental units in Montclair, will be forgoing more than $50,000 in rent for the three months, ABC7 reported.

“By and large we’ve gotten a good reception from our tenants, they’re happy that we were able to do this early on and really able to show them some compassion and feelings for what they might be going through,” said Placek to the outlet.
