WMA SAMPLE RENT DEFERRAL/FORBEARANCE FORMS

As California’s eviction moratorium comes to an end, it’s important that parks and managers are using the correct forms when starting the lease termination process. WMA has provided the form “3/60 Notice to Pay Rent October 2021 – March 2022″. 

These are forms suggested for Management’s use when a resident requests a deferral of rent. These are only suggested forms, not intended as legal advice. We strongly recommend that you consult with your legal advisor.
