Newsom Signed Statewide COVID-19 Tenant and Landlord Protection Legislation

Tenant and Landlord Protection - Newsflash

On August 31, Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation to protect millions of tenants from eviction and property owners from foreclosure due to the economic impacts of COVID-19. These protections apply to tenants who declare an inability to pay all or part of the rent due to a COVID-related reason.

Under the legislation, no tenant can be evicted before February 1, 2021 as a result of rent owed due to a COVID-19 related hardship accrued between March 4 – August 31, 2020, if the tenant provides a declaration of hardship according to the legislation’s timelines. For a COVID-19 related hardship that accrues between September 1, 2020 – January 31, 2021, tenants must also pay at least 25 percent of the rent due to avoid eviction.

A new website was launched by the state to provide easier access to information and resources for landlords, tenants and homeowners. Information regarding COVID-19 rent relief will be released on the website as well. For more information visit their website.

More information regarding the Legislation can be found on the ca.gov wesbite.
