Gov. Gavin Newsom and other legislators have consented to a proposal to extend California’s eviction moratorium by another 5 months. They are also proposing a new model to allocate the $2.6 Billion in federal rent relief to occupants monetarily hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic and rental property owners (of which $1.5 Billion to be allocated for California), an exertion that would head off what some caution could be a housing emergency in the state, authorities said Monday, January 25th, 2021. It is estimated that over 1 million renters are behind on payments, totaling approximately $3.7 Billion in unpaid rent. $1.5 Billion in rent relief subsidies would cover approximately 40.5% of the total estimated delinquent rent in California.

Effective March 20, 2020, due to the Governor’s Shelter in Place Order, we have closed our offices but will still be taking calls and responding to emails during our normal office hours, Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST. We will still be servicing our tenants and customers remotely.
Please know that we are still providing maintenance to those units requiring it. However, please remember our maintenance teams and their families. They deserve protection and to that end, we ask that you:
- Open all of your windows prior and during the time our technician is in your unit.
- Keep all people at least 6 feet away from our technician at all times.
- Make soap and water available to our technician immediately upon arrival, during the visit and at the completion of the job; and, most importantly,
Let us know if anyone in your home shows any symptoms of illness so that we may reschedule for a day when everyone is well.
