Protect Your Access To Applicants Eviction History Call now or lose your rights at a huge cost!
How would you like to inherit repeat non-payers of rent because of a "hiding" law that prevents you, the owner, from knowing the specifics of an applicant's rental history when running credit reports? AB 2819 (Chiu) will permanently hide all unlawful detainer (court eviction) actions, unless the wronged rental property owner files a judgment in court within 60 days for outstanding monies owed. If the owner does not take this action within 60 days, the repeat non-payer will move into the rental without the owner knowing their history. Sometimes owners don't file a judgment for outstanding monies. Sometimes they just want possession of their unit because the situation has been so stressful and draining. This bill unfairly places ALL costs, burdens, and responsibilities for ensuring public notice of tenant defaults on the property owner with a specific time limit. If you choose not to file within 60 days, the resident gets their poor rental history wiped clean.
