In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, cities throughout California are issuing orders and adopting urgency ordinances establishing temporary eviction moratoriums on evictions due to non-payment of rent for renters impacted by COVID-19.  Some cities are also prohibiting “no-fault” evictions except in limited circumstances.  In addition, some cities are also prohibiting Ellis Act evictions.

The number of cities that have instituted temporary eviction moratoriums continues to expand.  The list provided below is a sampling of the cities, with links to their orders and/or ordinances, that have implemented temporary moratoriums and not inclusive of all the cities that may adopt such moratoriums.  The Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles is committed to providing updated information throughout the pandemic.

If you have property in a specific city or cities, if it is one of the cities listed below, we encourage you to review the city’s public order or urgency ordinance. For cities not listed, we encourage you to check to see if that City has established a temporary moratorium.   In all the above circumstances, if you have questions regarding your property or specific tenancies and the requirements of a specific eviction moratorium, please consult with an attorney.

The Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles promotes the highest levels of professionalism within the rental housing industry.

We do this by offering a wide array of educational seminars and member events throughout each year, by providing expert operational advice available daily, and by supplying and maintaining virtually every conceivable agreement form and notice rental housing providers require to successfully own and manage rental properties. We also serve as a powerful advocate and lobbyist for rental housing providers at the local, county, state and federal levels of government. Owning and operating rental housing has become a highly regulated industry, and accordingly, owning and managing rental property has become far more challenging and riskier than ever before. Without an Association such as ours, there would be no other voice fighting for the rights of property owners within our city halls, county offices, and at the state and federal capitols. WE ARE THE VOICE THAT EFFECTS CHANGE!
