Extension of the COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act
AB 832 extends the current COVID-19 eviction protections, which were set to expire on June 30, 2021, for an additional three months until September 30, 2021. AB 832 expands the existing State Rental Assistance Program to provide landlords with 100% of rent owed by qualifying residents. AB 832 was signed into law on
June 28, 2021, and took effect immediately as an urgency measure.
No later than July 31, 2021, landlords are required to send an informational notice to their residents who, as of July 1 2021, have unpaid rent payments due on or after March 1, 2020. This requirement applies in most jurisdictions. Failure to do so may affect your ability to evict a resident for nonpayment.
