The California Apartment Association has published an Industry Insights paper with answers to some of the most frequently asked questions on the COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act of 2020.

On Aug. 31, the state Legislature and governor approved AB 3088, immediately implementing the COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act, or CTRA. The urgency measure established sweeping protections against eviction for tenants financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and has spurred numerous questions from rental property owners throughout California.

Here are just a few of the roughly 40 questions answered in the FAQ:

  • My rental property is a single-family home. Is it exempt from CTRA?
  • Does CTRA apply to a tenant who moved in after the COVID-19 pandemic began?
  • My resident hasn’t paid rent since April 2020. What can I do?
  • I heard the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued a nationwide eviction moratorium. How does that affect properties in California?
