Evictions protections remain in place for City of Los Angeles residential tenants, now & for the foreseeable future
Residential renters in the City of LA: you cannot be evicted right now, if you can’t pay your rent due to illness, loss of work, or other COVID-related circumstances. As of September 1, that will not change.
However, if someone tries to tell you or someone you know otherwise, or tries to give you an eviction notice, please don’t just ignore it. Instead, make sure you get the protections you deserve by doing these two things:
- File a report with the City of LA’s Housing Department on their website at http://HCIDLA.LAcity.org, or by calling their hotline at 1-866-557-7368
- Get legal help - help is available at no cost through the lawyers participating in the City’s LA Represents program. Learn more and get help at https://corona-virus.la/LARepresents
Still have questions? Please call the Housing Department at 1-866-557-7368, or visit their website at at http://HCIDLA.LAcity.org.
WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE THINK EVICTIONS PROTECTIONS END SEPTEMBER 1?
The Judicial Council is the policy-setting body for the judicial branch of the state government, and that moratorium was a temporary one. Case processing was put on hold, to allow state lawmakers time to develop a longer-term solution for all Californians, which is in currently the works.
