Changes to Eviction Protections Effective October 1st
Burbank, CA (September 29, 2021):
State of California Residential Eviction Order Update
The CA State Residential Eviction Order is set to expire September 30, 2021. This law supersedes local eviction orders and put in place temporary protections for residential renters unable to pay rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Eligible residential tenants impacted by COVID-19 may be able to rely on the Los Angeles County’s emergency moratorium but ultimately, in an eviction action, a court will decide.
With the state residential eviction order ending, beginning October 1, 2021, landlords may proceed with eviction proceedings for past due rent. Therefore, it is urgent that residential tenants protect themselves from eviction for unpaid rent due to COVID-19 hardship by applying to the State Rental Assistance program at Housingiskey.com.
