On March 19, 2020, Governor Newsom has issued a Stay-at-Home Order (“Order”). The purpose of the Order is to reduce public contact to slow and prevent the spread of the COVID-19. However, due to the Order, many businesses have closed down or terminated employees because income have disappeared or decreased by 60.00%.
With income flow reduced or ceased, many businesses cannot afford to pay rent. Thus, Governor Newsom announced on March 27, 2020 that landlords cannot evict any tenants for the next 2 months; however, tenants must repay the unpaid rents within 1-year but no late and penalty fees can be charged against tenants.
If you are a tenant and cannot pay your residential or commercial rent, please contact our office for a free consultation. 949.591.8781
