The Latest COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act Extension

Categories: Planning Property Management Real Estate Residents

Published 07/15/2021

The California Apartment Association has published an array of compliance materials — including an Industry Insight document, an FAQ, and related forms — to help rental housing providers comply with AB 832, legislation signed into law earlier this month that extends the state’s COVID-19 eviction moratorium by three months.

The moratorium had been scheduled to expire with SB 91 on Wednesday, June 30th, 2021 but will remain in effect through September 30th, 2021.

AB 832 also expands the existing State Rental Assistance Program to provide landlords with 100% of rent owed by qualifying residents.

Compliance materials:

The California Apartment Association has published an Industry Insight document and an FAQ to help rental housing providers comply with AB 832. If you are a CAA member, the Industry Insights are accessible for your viewing.

Important deadline:

No later than July 31st, 2021, rental housing providers are required to send an informational notice to their residents who, as of July 1st, 2021, have unpaid rent payments due on or after March 1st, 2020. Failure to do so may affect a rental housing provider’s ability to evict a resident for nonpayment. See Question 1 in Section II of the FAQ for more information.
