News and Updates for Renters and Landlords

Homeowners and Renters Affected by Bobcat Fire

Disaster recovery loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are now available to Los Angeles County residents and businesses who suffered damage as a result of the Bobcat wildfire that began on September 6, 2020.

Disaster loans up to $200,000 are available to homeowners to repair damaged or destroyed real estate. Homeowners and renters are eligible for up to $40,000 to repair or replace damaged or destroyed personal property.

Temporary Eviction Moratorium

The Los Angeles County Temporary Eviction Moratorium, effective March 4, 2020, through November 30, 2020*, unless repealed or extended by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, places a Countywide ban on evictions for residential and commercial  tenants, including mobilehome space renters. Under the County’s Moratorium, tenants may not be evicted for COVID-19 related nonpayment of rent, as well as no-fault reasons, nuisance, or unauthorized occupants or pets – if related to COVID-19.

*Note: As of October 1, 2020, the County’s Moratorium will no longer apply to residential tenants facing eviction for nonpayment of rent due to COVID-19 related financial hardship.

More information on Temporary Eviction Moratorium can be found at dcba.lacounty.gov/noevictions.
