On June 29, 2021, Governor Newsom signed into law AB 832, which amended the COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act of 2020. AB 832 requires landlords to serve any tenants who have not paid rent between March 31, 2020 to July 30, 2021 with an updated COVID-19 Tenant Relief Disclosure. This notice must be served to your tenant on or before July 31, 2021 and can be served by regular U.S. Mail. If you fail to give this notice to your tenant, you cannot serve a notice to pay rent or quit and prevail with an unlawful detainer for nonpayment of rent. Additionally, AB 832 updated the 15 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit allowing for you to demand rent from September 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021.
If you would prefer to have our office prepare and serve your tenant with the required disclosure we charge $50 per disclosure. If you would like our office to serve your tenant with a 15 day notice to pay rent or quit and the disclosure we charge $145 for drafting the notices and $65 for service. Please reply to this email to request assistance with the preparation of any notices.
