Q: I signed a lease at the beginning of February for a six-month rental beginning in May. It is for a rental in a condo in Greenwich, Connecticut. I have a cosigner, and I've given a one-month security deposit. I contacted the Realtor after the coronavirus started to spread and asked him how to handle my situation. He said I should contact the landlord and that movers are essential businesses. I told him most of the things that I was looking forward to using in Greenwich had been shut down. The stores and the restaurants are only doing takeout service. My Realtor said there were still a lot of places to walk to in the area. Afterward, the owner of the condo unit emailed me with the name of a mover in the area. I am over 60. According to the governors, older people that are not essential workers are supposed to stay home and stay safe. I want the condo rental but I do not think it would be wise for me to move at this time. Could you please advise me how to handle my situation. Thank you, Sue
