The California Apartment Association has published a package of compliance materials about AB 2179, a law temporarily extending part of California’s COVID-19 eviction moratorium through June 30.

Effective April 1, 2022, some tenants remain protected. Those tenants include:

  • Tenants whose tenancies started prior to October 1, 2021, and
  • Tenants with applications for rental assistance that were submitted on or before March 31, 2022, and
  • Tenants who are awaiting either approval or payment from the rental assistance program.

These tenants are protected from eviction for non-payment of rent due prior to April 1, 2022.  

For tenants with past due balances, who do not have a pending rental assistance applications, landlords must serve the appropriate non-payment notice.  Tenants who do not cure the notice within the required period can be evicted.   

CAA strongly recommends working with an attorney to prepare and serve any non-payment notices and unlawful detainer filings.

The following CAA resources are now available to help landlords comply with this law:
