Event Details

The Eviction Moratorium is DONE! What are your legal responsibilities now?


Jim Cole and Betty Jeppesen, leading local landlord/tenant experts, will give us their insights on Assembly Bill 832 (Senate Bill 91 extension). They will discuss the ramifications and analysis of the state eviction protection and rental relief law.

Get plans of action and strategies on when and how to evict problem tenants, ideas you can deploy today to ensure you collect as much past due rent as possible and UNDERSTAND your rights as a rental property owner in today’s seemingly “upside down” world.

Discussion topics include:

  • Where are we today with the Tenant Relief Act the Rental Assistance Program?
  • What are a landlord's rights and responsibilities at this time? How will things change later this year?
  • When can landlords finally bring forth eviction cases? When can rent be collected?
  • What strategies can be imposed to collect rent and/or process an eviction…NOW?
  • What are the long-term ramifications of the pandemic to the rental housing industry and YOUR investment in rental property?
  • The extension of Senate Bill 91, now Assembly Bill 832 – What YOU Need to Know: When can you start to evict? What amendments and extensions have passed or are pending?
  • How to deal with difficult tenants that won’t communicate and won’t pay rent, or that are committing other “at fault” breaches of their lease.
  • Can your tenants continue to withhold rent from YOU?
  • What are YOUR options today? Can YOU proceed with an eviction at this time?
  • What time does happy hour start? (e.g., When will things go back to normal?)
