New State legislation will protect tenants across California from eviction and property owners from foreclosure due to the economic impacts of COVID-19.
Gov. Gavin Newsom on August 28 signed the legislation, which protects tenants from eviction (before Feb. 1, 2021) for non-payment of rent due to a coronavirus-related hardship occurring between March 4 – August 31. For such hardship accruing between September 1 and January 31, 2021, tenants must also pay at least 25 percent of the rent due to avoid eviction.
