In the final week of the legislative session in California, the governor and legislative leaders struck a deal on eviction relief for residential renters and foreclosure protections for small landlords financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. California Assembly Bill (AB) 3088, known as the Tenant, Homeowner, and Small Landlord Relief and Stabilization Act of 2020 (the Act), received legislative approval before the midnight deadline on Monday, August 31, and Governor Newsom signed the bill shortly thereafter. The new law, effective immediately, allows the state to delay the anticipated resumption on September 1, 2020 of unlawful detainer actions by California courts. Assembly Member David Chiu, the author of the Act, explained that AB 3088 is a temporary solution meant to provide some level of certainty to renters, modest protections for small landlords and time for the state to determine what additional relief may be needed in the future. Notably absent from the bill are any protections for commercial real estate tenants and landlords.
