Residential Rental Property Owner Perspectives and Practices in Philadelphia: Evaluating Challenges during the COVID-19 Pandemic

This research brief examines the experiences and perspectives of residential rental property owners and managers in Philadelphia. Reinvestment Fund and the Housing Initiative at Penn (HIP) developed this
research brief to examine challenges that landlords faced—including how they dealt with evictions—
prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic; new or increased difficulties stemming from the pandemic; and landlords’ engagement with and attitudes towards programs aimed at stabilizing tenants in rental housing.1  We also present considerations for policymakers as they contemplate both short-term and long-term strategies to reduce housing instability.
