Covid-19 has disrupted a great number of processes under the law. Perhaps nothing has been disrupted quite as much as ordinary rules for Unlawful Detainers.
There are some resources which will be of use to landlords that are ordinarily distributed by the Landlord Tenant Assistance Center (LTAC). You may reach them by phone at (661) 868-4672, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . It is in your best interests to seek legal advice from a licensed attorney if you are unclear about how to proceed in your matter. If you only need up to date information and/or forms, LTAC is a fantastic resource.
Something distributed by LTAC and also available on this site is the Complaint Packet (Metro, Rev. 1.22.2021). This recently updated packet features notes and information re: Covid-19. You may also find it useful to have a copy of the Landlord checklist on hand.
This 15 day packet may be of use if your tenant owes unpaid rent accrued between September 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021.
You may wish to review this Judicial Council prepared set of FAQs about AB 3088, the most recent legislation to deal with the respective obligations of landlords and tenants impacted by Covid-19.
If you would like access to Westlaw and its collection of Rutter Group Practice Guide materials, particularly on the subject of Landlord-Tenant matters, please contact the Law Library staff for your free license to use Westlaw wherever you have internet access.
