Amid the Covid-19 Rental Housing Crisis, AB 1482 Requirements Still Loom

Amid the Covid-19 Rental Housing Crisis, AB 1482 Requirements Still Loom in the Background

Governor Gavin Newsom released an executive order on 3/16/20 that would allow local government authorities to suspend evictions. This executive order would also delay the eviction of homeowners and defend against utility shutdowns during the emergency issues related to COVID-19.

The order was created as COVID-19 continues to impact Californians by reduction of labor hours and layoffs which hinder tenants ability to maintain rental agreement payments and other obligations, property owners then being affected in keeping up with their mortgages, and costs of utility services to both.

The limitations would remain in effect until 5/31/20. The important thing to note is that this order does not relieve a tenant or limit a landlord’s right to recover their rent under certain circumstances.

You can read the complete Executive Order here and the most recent Executive order from 3/27/20 here.

On  3/17/20, Governor Newsom then released Executive Order N-28-20 expressly requiring local governments to suspend evictions on tenants impacted by COVID-19 due to the unprecedented economic effect of COVID-19. As a result, a patchwork of local commercial and/or residential “eviction moratoria” was immediately adopted by more than 70 counties and towns.

To ensure continuity across California and to help shelter-in-place orders, Governor Newsom then released a further executive order with restricted statewide residential tenant security on 3/27/20. (Executive Order N-37-20). The state moratorium ends 5/31/20. (see complete list of cities that have placed restrictions on evictions).

As if giving the local cities the ability to create their own restrictions wasn’t enough harm to property owners, the Governor has also allowed Judicial Counsel of the Courts for the State of California the ability to allow each court jurisdiction to mandate for their own specific restrictions; which will cause an extreme delay in cases that the Executive Order would otherwise not apply to.

But let’s not forget about the other main Rent Control Ordinance that came into play this year which was good ole’ AB 1482. The requirement deadlines for AB 1482 will be here before you know it and landlords need to make sure that they have complied whether they are “exempt” or “non-exempt”.

For any tenancies established prior to July 2020, in order to claim the exemption, landlords must give a specific notice to the tenants of the exemption and same applies to properties that are not exempt. For tenancies starting in July 2020 and after, the notice must be incorporated in the lease.

Please contact our office to make sure you are in compliance with the specific requirements before the deadline passes us by.

As always, we are here to defend the interests of owners and our clients who have been affected by the uncertainty of AB 1482 and COVID-19.  

We at Fastevict.com Law Group, encourage you to be understanding throughout this time, when dealing with your tenant(s) and their inability to pay their rent or any other matter related to COVID-19.  Communicate with your tenants regarding the impact that this has on you as the owner or manager and advise them to make their rent payments if they are not affected by COVID-19. Last but not least, inform them that if they are not able to pay at this time, a repayment plan signed by both parties would be in everyone’s best interest.

Please feel free to contact our office with any questions, sample forms needed, or any concerns you have. Our temporary office hours are Monday – Friday 10 am – 4 pm (by phone only until further notice).

As always, stay safe from the staff of M.C. Earle and Associates /Fast Eviction Service. Stay safe from the staff of Fast Eviction Service and M.C. Earle Law Group.
