Los Angeles County Temporary Eviction Moratorium Includes COMMERCIAL

WHAT IS THE L.A. COUNTY TEMPORARY EVICTION MORATORIUM?

The Los Angeles County Temporary Eviction Moratorium, effective March 4, 2020 to September 30, 2020, implements a Countywide ban on evictions for residential and commercial tenants, including mobile home space renters. During the moratorium, tenants may not be evicted for COVID 19 related non-payment of rent, as well as no fault reasons, nuisance, unauthorized occupants or pets, if related to COVID-19. The moratorium may be extended by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors on a month-to-month basis.

Now there are numerous conditions associated for it to apply, but foolish is the Landlord who tries to test the willingness of a Judge to demonstrate leeway and award attorney fees to the "victimized," deadbeat tenant.

Los Angeles County is quite a large county, and I'm surprised that I could not find anything on Zero Hedge about this.

Los Angeles County probably is not the only county or city that has placed moratoriums like this.

That means there is a much larger avalanche of foreclosures and defaults waiting in the pipeline once these moratoriums lift.
