Our office has fielded a brisk number of calls and emails about how to handle a mountain of rent debt. As a refresher, Sacramento lawmakers and Governor Newsom have provided guidance by enacting SB 19, a law we took on in-depth here.
Tenants who owe rent debt must now be informed of the sweeping changes and as a courtesy, we share the notice here. When in doubt, please reach out to our offices for proper service requirements.
A special thanks to all of our friends at the East Bay Rental Housing Association for giving us the recent opportunity to discuss this complex set of landlording rules. They have been kind enough to share a replay of the webinar you can access on YouTube.
On Wednesday, February 24, Bornstein Law will be hosting our own online event to survey the legal landscape. Thanks to the 560 participants who have decided to join us and invite you to register if you haven’t already done so.
While these remain challenging times for landlords, property managers, and real estate professionals, we do have a clearer road map as we enter a new phase in the pandemic. By thinking smartly and strategically about real estate investments and having proper counsel in managing landlord-tenant relationships, our community will come out the other side.
We look forward to our next exchange and until then, please use an abundance of caution in staying safe.
