Vermont is being flooded by COVID-19 hot-spotters looking to buy property. Gov. Scott ended quarantine rules for them recently. Now, sociopath real estate agents in Brattleboro are trying to bring them into people’s homes.
Vermont’s current emergency directive — “Realtors and landlords may not require occupants of a home or apartment to allow potential buyers or renters into their home” — is little different from a standard consent clause in a lease. It makes tenants choose their lives or a bad relationship with their landlord.
It is beyond sick, and it’s happening now.
If the state will not forbid murdering tenants for money, Brattleboro must step to the rescue. Immediately.
