The result also revealed that 51% of tenants did not receive CBU (uniform banking key) to make bank transfer, a mandatory measure by decree and that 34.1% of respondents have a household member who lost their job or receives no income from quarantine.

In addition, it is urgent, as soon as Congress reopens, a renting law that brings peace of mind to 9 million tenants and tenants across the country.»
