Last Thursday, UCLA Luskin Institute on Inequality released a report estimating how many residential evictions would be carried out in LA County once the state moratorium lifts.
The report points to what could be seen as a ticking time bomb which is the eviction moratorium that was announced in April. Under the rule, all residential and commercial evictions are suspended until the Judicial Council lifts the order or Governor Newsom declares California is no longer in a state of emergency.
The report brings up the possbility that neither the state nor local governments have yet to pass long-term eviction protections for people who no longer can pay rent. However, our last blag post touches on a potential new assistance program that would give $100 million to help assist low-income tenants.
"These unfounded claims of mass evictions are just more of the same attacks against private property owners that will ultimately force rental housing providers out of business here in California," said executive director of the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles, Daniel Yukelson.
