If you are looking for a reprieve from the Trump real estate empire during the coronavirus pandemic, don't expect it.
NY1 obtained this letter, which was sent to a resident of a Trump-managed building on the East Side of Manhattan last week. The building, Trump World Tower, is full of luxury apartments — one two-bedroom listed now goes for almost $5 million.
The building is a condominium, so apartments are owned by individual residents. But it’s still managed by the Trump Corporation (as you can see from the letterhead below). According to state business records, the chief executive officer of the Trump Corporation is Eric Trump, the president’s son.
But just in case those residents have financial hardship during the coronavirus crisis, they may not have a sympathetic ear from the Trump empire.
The letter we received states: "Please note all common charge bills are being sent out early this month in the event businesses are asked to close due to the coronavirus." We are told residents received the letter last week.
It goes on: "While all payment grace periods for your building will be honored, all common charges must be paid on time and late penalties will be assessed as stated in your condominium rules."
We reached out to the Trump Organization for comment and we have not heard back.
