Despite Minnesota Governor Tim Walz's executive order that foreclosures and evictions would be suspended for the duration of the COVID-19 peacetime emergency,  Attorney General Keith Ellison has already had to sue several landlords for violating that order.

That's not a problem in the Twin Ports right now, but there is still a lot of confusion about what to pay and how to pay it, especially if you've lost your job as a result of the pandemic.

Jeff Corey, executive director of 1 Roof Community Housing says the most important thing to remember is if you can't make a monthly payment, talk to your mortgage lender or landlord right away.

1 Roof Community Housing is also the headquarters of the Tenant Landlord Connection, and Corey wants folks to know that even though the offices are closed, everyone is working from home and available to help and answer questions.  He recommends an email to or call (218) 727-5372 to be directed to the right person.
