When Steve Rogers was out of New York City for an extended period of time (a few weeks) on a series of missions, his landlord Cal Trimble sold his things and rented his room at the Corinth Hotel, even though Rogers' rent was paid up.

Trimble, landlord of the low-cost but run-down Corinth Hotel, had been angered when Rogers refused to pay him bribe money after being blackmailed by Trimble. So when Rogers (secretly Captain America) was away, Trimble sold his belongings and rented the room.

The person who rented the room Steve Rogers had lived in was named "Scarlett." She appears to be (and acted like) an aging prostitute.

In the scene in which Rogers meets Scarlett and then confronts Trimble about renting out his room, it is clear that Scarlett and Trimble know each other well. It is likely that landlord Cal Trimble and new tenant Scarlett have an alternative compensation arrangement for paying for rent.
