IRVINE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 29, 2021 / The latest US Census Bureau's Household Pulse Survey states 4.2 million renters face potential eviction as current CDC COVID-19 related eviction moratoriums are set to expire on June 30, 2021.

As confusion continues for both property owners and tenants, an AI based tool by www.DontPayItNow.com, has been released at no cost to people at risk during the impending eviction crisis.

The amount of unpaid rent could exceed $52 billion (about $160 per person in the US). It [is] estimated that the average delinquent household owes $5,586. In mid-May, 7.49 million US adults said they were not current on rent or mortgage payments and had slight or no confidence they could make next month's payment, according to the Census Bureau's Household Pulse Survey.

Some property owners were seen going as far as evicting all tenants from their properties, On Jun 08, 2021, one such Miami property owner, was reported by the Miami Herald as having an entire apartment building of 200+ units forcing all tenants to move out within sixty days.

To aid at-risk renters facing eviction, SettleThatDebt.com has created an interactive AI based tool that helps tenants negotiate with their landlords. Through partnering with attorneys and eviction protection advocates, the tool allows tenants to create and mail automated formal drafted requests to their landlords without the need for the user to do anything other then answer a few questions on their cell phone or computer.

The tool, originally slated to be a for-pay service, is being made available freely for a limited time at www.DontPayItNow.com due to the impending housing crises.

"We've seen a significant increase in the number of clients that have received eviction letters wanting help," said Jand Hashemi, President of SettleThatDebt.com, the company that created Don't Pay It Now.

The automated tool helps to streamline the steps involved in resolving disputes with property owners and their tenants, as well as potentially getting their cases resolved quickly. The tool guides users through the process of selecting their state, county, landlord, creditors, entering the amount(s) they owe, and provides a step-by-step interactive experience for creating, mailing, and tracking delivery of requests for rent extensions, settlement offers, or fee waivers.

www.DontPayItNow.com's new automated tool is part of SettleThatDebt.com's larger initiative to help its clients get back on their feet.
