1918 - Box-office superstar William S. Hart promotes 4th series of Liberty Loan (World War I) bonds, which went on sale Sept. 28 [story]
William S. Hart


The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to extend its eviction moratorium through June 30, 2021, where not preempted by state bills AB3088 and SB91 which provide eviction protections to residential tenants unable to pay rent due to financial distress related to COVID-19.

The action extends county protections that go beyond the state legislation, including commercial evictions; no-fault evictions; prohibiting evictions for unauthorized occupants, pets, nuisances; or for tenants who reasonably deny entry to their landlords during the public health crisis.

Without this extension and related state legislation, hundreds of thousands of County households could face eviction because of the inability to pay rent caused by lost or reduced income during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am heartened by recent reductions in cases and deaths caused by COVID19 and hopeful that the end of the pandemic may be coming into view, but we are not out of the woods yet and neither are renters,” said Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, author of the motion. “No one should be threatened with eviction or made homeless by this pandemic, so, once again, we are acting to make sure that no one loses their home as a result of this prolonged public health crisis.”

The Supervisors’ action today also adopted a structure for violations that included up to $5000 per violation, per day, for violations of the tenant harassment and retaliation protections; and $10,000 per day if harassment is directed at a senior or disabled tenant. The motion also authorizes the Department of Consumer and Business Affairs to waive payment of the Annual Rent Registration Fee paid annually by landlords and mobile home park owners.

“We are beginning to turn a new chapter with vaccines now being distributed to protect against COVID-19,” said Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Hilda L. Solis, Supervisor to the First District. “However, we must be cognizant that there are still households and businesses struggling to weather this pandemic. Los Angeles County’s eviction moratorium has served as a safety net for our most vulnerable residents, and the passage of today’s motion will continue to protect rent-burdened households from falling into homelessness, as well as provide a lifeline to local small businesses who have been hardest hit by the economic fallout.”

    Thank you for all the help given to tenants. I contacted covid in Nov 2020 then I had to I initiate your moratorium program In Dec. 2020. I no longer have a job.i did not qualify for pandemic unemployment,i did not qualify for fresh start food program or medi-cal(I have big bill for my covid hospitalization now) i did not qualify for all the programs because Idid not have a copy of my SS card or a copy of my permanent visa(I am from Canada). I tried to get copies but both Govn offices were closed for appointments and being a visa holder I had to be present. I sent away for my whole immigrant file and received it but I needed the card itself to qualify for the programs. So… the eviction moratorium saved my life.i am very grateful. My question is now that it is ensing in 3 weeks. If I do not have the full amount to pay my landlord but I have paid all of the 25%. So is it true that I cannot get evicted for the amount owed only if I become late in my rent again? Is there a date I. Which my past arrears will be due? I did apply for rental assistance but I have not heard anything yet. Thank you for your help,
    Pamela Smith
