COVID-19 state law

The COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act (“CTRA”) and COVID-19 Rental Housing Recovery Acts (“Recovery Act”) enacted temporary protections from eviction for residents unable to pay rent and other charges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Most, but not all of the protections in these laws have expired.

Effective July 1, 2022, standard three-day notices can be used for rent and other payments due on or after October 1, 2021. A hybrid 3/30 day notice is still required if the property is covered by the CARES Act (see below). CAA’s 15-day notices for non-payment of amount due prior to October 1, 2021 have been discontinued. See CAA Non-Payment Notices below.

For information about the current status of all tenant protections enacted by CTRA and the Recovery Act, see the Industry Insight linked below.
