California Tenant Rights Update

New Los Angeles County Tenant Resources

Federal, state, and local governments promulgated emergency COVID-19 measures created an array of different tenant protections. The Federal CDC eviction moratorium ended on 7/31/21. On January 29, 2021, California Governor Gavin Newsom extended the statewide eviction moratorium, including the City of Long Beach, to September 30, 2021. The legislation provides eviction and foreclosure protection for many residential tenants and property owners suffering from economic hardship due to COVID-19.  While the state eviction ban has expired, tenants still have rights related to the covered period, and certain additional protections exist under a County of Los Angeles resolution. Nolo Law provides a California-County-based chart summarizing these laws; however, these guidelines are continuously changing, so please check for legal updates.
