Dear Clients and Friends:
Welcome to our fifth annual Newsletter containing California legislative updates on Commercial Real Estate Law.

Below is an excerpt from our article on legislative developments that became effective in 2019. Please contact us if you have any comments or questions with which we can assist.

I am also honored to announce that I received the 2019 inaugural Excellence in Practice Award from the California Law Association's Solo and Small Firm Section. The Award honors "a solo or small firm attorney who has demonstrated exemplary leadership and dedication to the legal profession and has contributed to the betterment of the practice of law."  
Norma J. Williams, Esq.

Several laws affecting commercial real property passed by the California legislature in 2018 (or earlier) became effective Jan. 1, 2019, or will become effective later this year.
Three-Day Notices/Responses to Summons.
In a change affecting evictions (residential and commercial), effective Sept. 1, 2019, the three days within which a tenant must cure a lease default and the five days within which a tenant must respond to a summons in an unlawful detainer action will exclude Saturdays, Sundays and other judicially observed holidays. Current law allows three and five calendar days, respectively.
