Tenant Procedure

One of the most signficant effects that Covid-19 has had is on the subject of landlord-tenant issues.  The rules seem to be changing regularly, and it can be extremely confusing for landlords and tenants alike.

If you were not aware, there is a specialized unit of legal assistants that deal only with issues of Landlord-Tenant law.  This is the Shriver Project’s Landlord-Tenant Assistance Center (LTAC for short).  If you need information (not advice) on a Landlord-Tenant issue, we encourage you to contact them at (661) 868-4660, or email them at
