2020 already stood to be the most complicated era in landlord-tenant law ever. After Assembly Bill 1482 ushered in statewide rent and eviction controls, local governments grappled to institute their own rules.
Then the pandemic hit.
For what seemed to be an eternity, courts were ground to a near halt until the judiciary and Sacramento lawmakers provided some guidance on how to return to a semi-state of normalcy.
Although a critical branch of our government has been restored, the law is always cleaner on the page than it is in real life. Many more questions linger.
It's a tall order, but we are committed to making sense of it all and help broker solutions with the strong bias of avoiding the inundated court system unless absolutely necessary.
Never in our careers have rental property owners faced such a complicated regulatory regime, but together, we will power through your real estate challenges.
Some of our team members have put together their own remarks, sharing what they are thankful for in these difficult times.
To our valued clients, referral partners and trade groups that join us in educating our community, we wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
