Tenant Rights and Resources During the COVID19 Pandemic

  • The State of California has passed AB3088. This policy ensures that tenants in California who experienced COVID-19 related financial hardship can never be evicted so long as you:


    1. Respond to an eviction notice within 15 days, by returning a completed "declaration of impact" and 
    2. Pay at least 25% of the rent due between 9/1/20-1/31/21. 

    AB3088 expires 2/1/2021


    Unpaid COVID-19 related rent debt and late fees are owed to your landlord starting March 1, 2021. If you can pay at least 25% of the rent owed between 9/1/20-1/31/21 to protect yourself under both the CDC order and AB 3088, you should.

  • If your landlord has served you with an eviction notice or they are threatening to evict you please call the Public Law Center to seek a free legal consultation: (714) 541-1010; 303
