We've been getting a lot of questions this month about the new eviction protection laws recently passed by the CDC and in California so we wanted to provide an overview to California landlords and property managers on this episode of Five Minute Friday. Full disclosure, Bob Preston, the host of the show, is NOT an attorney so this episode should not be take as legal advise. It offers only his opinions and summary, from his interpretation, as to how a landlord should handle such situations under the new law. In all cases, should you find yourself in this situation, please consult an attorney.
The California state legislature and Governor Newsom have taken action by signing the COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act (AB 3088) into law on August 31, 2020. The purpose of this update is to bring you up to speed on this new law. We will warn you, it's all pretty confusing, so we have pasted in a link to additional resources for further reference and clarification. AB 3088 continues protection for residential tenants with a financial hardship related to COVID-19 from being evicted until 2021 under certain circumstances. AB 3088 limits a landlord’s ability to evict a tenant for non-payment of rent due from March 1, 2020 to January 31, 2021 if the tenant has experienced a financial hardship related to COVID-19.
