Previously, we covered HB 4213, a COVID-19-related law that banned certain apartment and commercial evictions by September 30, 2020 and allowed eligible tenants to make their rent repayments by March 31, 2021. Through Executive Order 20-56, Governor Brown later extended the repayment deadline for residential renters to June 30, 2021, but let the commercial repayment deadline expire on March 31st.
Now, Governor Brown has put HB 2966 into effect, extending the repayment period for qualified commercial tenants to September 30, 2021. In order to be eligible for an extended repayment, commercial tenants must meet all existing requirements under HB 4213 (payment of all amounts due after September 30, 2020 and written notification to the tenant’s landlord that he intends to claim the grace period (see previous legal update for more details.) Commercial tenants must also work with the landlord’s efforts to apply for financial assistance.
HB 2966 is retroactive to the previous expiration date March 31, 2021. Eviction actions that were filed after March 31, 2021 and which were not reduced to a judgment by the entry into force of HB 2966 (June 14, 2021) must either remain until October 1, 2021 or dismissed without disadvantages or costs for one party become. As long as the commercial tenant has met the above requirements, the bill will prohibit all eviction activities until September 31, 2021 due to non-payment of amounts due from April 1, 2020 to September 30, 2020 (the time of emergency).
