Are you confused about protections around evictions during COVID-19? A number of levels of government have released guidance and protections for tenants at risk of eviction during the pandemic. Recent changes have come from federal, state, as well as local government, adding confusion to an already difficult situation for many tenants.
Fortunately, Los Angeles County's Department of Consumer and Business Affairs has partnered with community organizations and legal services providers and created "Stay Housed L.A. County," a one-stop shop on local tenant protections.
We encourage you to visit Stay Housed L.A. County if you have questions about:
Your rights as a tenant during the COVID emergency;
What to do if you can't pay your rent but want to ensure you are protected from eviction;
How to get in touch with a legal services provider that can help you with your case;
How to attend a virtual tenant workshop where you can learn more about your rights;
Whether your city has additional protections beyond what is available to most County residents.
We hope you will visit this website and use the resources that are available. Addional resources have also been created to assist tenants and their case managers:
