Did you skip the April rent payment and now the landlord has sent a “pay or quit” notice?
While a new state rule has put eviction proceedings temporarily on halt, beware the summer. The procedural delays set in place April 6 by the state’s Judicial Council give tenants until 90 days after the state of emergency is lifted to refrain from acting on legal demands for rent payments.
When that period ends, eviction proceedings are back on the docket.
To help tenants understand how the rules work, the California Attorney General’s Office has offered some guidance.
California has reached a deal with several financial institutions, including four of the country's five largest banks, to provide relief to homeowners affected by the coronavirus by suspending foreclosures and delaying mortgage payments, the governor announced Wednesday.
The news comes as unemployment claims in the state are soaring.
More than one million residents have filed for unemployment insurance since March 13, Gov. Gavin Newsom says, as workers continue to struggle with job losses and reduced hours, as the state looks to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
